#### formula

If a is a non-zero rational number and m and n are integers, then (a^{m})^{n} = a^{m × n} = a^{mn}.

#### notes

**Taking Power of a Power:**

If a is a non-zero rational number and m and n are integers, then (a^{m})^{n} = a^{m × n} = a^{mn}.

**(i) (3 ^{2})^{4} **

= 3^{2} × 3^{2} × 3^{2} × 3^{2}

= 3^{2 + 2 + 2 + 2}

= 3^{8}.....(Observe 8 is the product of 2 and 4).

= 3^{2 × 4}..............[ (a^{m})^{n} = a^{m × n }]

**(ii) (7 ^{2})^{10} **

= 7^{2 × 10}

= 7^{20}..............[ (a^{m})^{n} = a^{m × n} ]

**(iii) (3 ^{4})^{3} **

= 3^{4 × 3}

= 3^{12} ................[ (a^{m})^{n} = a^{m × n} ]

#### Example

**Solve: **`((2/5)^(-2))^3`.

`((2/5)^(-2))^3`.

`= (2/5)^(- 2) xx (2/5)^(- 2) xx (2/5)^(- 2)`

`= (2/5)^((- 2) + (- 2) + (- 2))`

`= (2/5)^(-6)`.

#### Example

**Solve: **`(7^(- 2))^(-5)`

`(7^(- 2))^(-5)`

`= 1/(7^(- 2))^5`

`= 1/(7^(- 2) xx 7^(- 2) xx 7^(- 2) xx 7^(- 2) xx 7^(- 2))`

`= 1/(7^((- 2) xx 5))`

`= 1/7^(- 10)`

`= 7^10`.
