ANY power with an exponent of zero, regardless if the BASE of the power is a number or a variable is equal to 1
- when dividing Powers with the same base, subtract the exponents.
- bases must be the same in order for you to be able to simplify such expressions
- multiplying powers with the same base, add the exponents.
- if bases are NOT the same your CAN'T simplify the expression
