52 = 5 × 5

= 25

Therefore, 25 52

(ii) 34 or 43

= 34 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 81

= 43 = 4 × 4 × 4

= 64

Therefore, 34 43

(iii) 35 or 53

= 35 = 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3

= 243

= 53 = 5 × 5 × 5

= 125

Therefore, 35 53

### Question: 8

Express each of the following in exponential form

(i) (-5) × (-5) × (-5) ### Solution:

(i) (-5) × (-5) × (-5) = (-5)3 ### Question: 9

(iii) (-2/3) × (-2/3) × x × x × x

### Solution:

(i) x × x × x × x × a × a × b × b × b = x4a2b3

(ii) (-2) × (-2) × (-2) × (-2) × a × a × a = (-2)4a3

(iii) (-2/3) × (-2/3) × x × x × x = (-2/3)2 x3

### Question: 10

Express each of the following rational numbers in power notation

(i) 49/64

(ii) - 64/125

(iii) -12/16

### Solution:

(i) 49/64 = (7/8)2

Because 72 = 49 and 82 = 64

(ii) - 64/125 = (- 4/5)3

Because 43 = 64 and 53 = 125

(iii) – (1/216) = - (1/6)3

Because 13 = 1 and 63 = 216

### Question: 15

(i) (-1/2)2 × 23 × (3/4)2

(ii) (-3/5)4 × (4/9)4 × (-15/18)2

### Solution:

(i) (-1/2)2 × 23 × (3/4)2 = 1/4 × 8 × 9/16

= 9/8

(ii) (-3/5)4 × (4/9)4 × (-15/18)2 = 81/625 × 256/6561 × 225/324 = 64/18225

### Question: 16
