 Monomials-Raising monomials to a power Multiply the exponent in the parentheses by the power. ( a2 b4 c3 )2 (a2)2=a4 (b4)2=b8 (c3)2=c6 Combine after multiplying by the power a4 b8c6 Multiplying signed numbers   The Rules (+) • (+) = (+) (+) • (-) = (-) (-) • (+) = (-) (-) • (-) = (+) Order of Operations PEMDAS Parentheses Exponents Multiply/Divide(left to right) Add Subtract (left to right) Plotting points on the coordinate plane Step 1 Start at the origin. Find the x-axis, count right for positive and left for negative x value Step 2 Find the y-axis, count up for positive and down for negative y value. Step 3 Write the location of this point Plot (6 -4)   Step 1 Begin at (0,0) move 6 to the right If it was negative you would move to the left Step 2. Move down since it is negative Step 3 Plot the point Polynomial multiplied by -1 When you multiply by -1 you simply change the sign of every term listed. -1(4a + 3b - 3c) = -4a -3b + 3a
