NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 13 Exponents and Powers

 

NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 13 Exponents and Powers: Exponents can be used to represents very large numbers and small numbers as the power of a base number. For example, the magnitude speed of light in a vacuum is approximately 300,000,000 = 3\times10^8,  0.000000001=10-9 .Another example is 1024=210. First, two examples are expressed as a power of 10 (where 10 is the base) and the third example is expressed as a power of 2 (where 2 is the base). The NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths Chapter 13 talks about exponents and laws of exponents. This chapter is a basic chapter for Maths and Science in the higher class. So familiarising with NCERT Solutions for Class 7 Maths is mandatory. 

One of the important topics of NCERT Solutions of this chapter is Laws Of Exponents, which are listed below

\\1.\ a^m\times a^n=a^{m+n}\\2.\ \frac{a^m}{a^n}=a^{m-n}\\ 3. \ (a^m)^n=a^{mn}

Here the important things to be noted is the base must be the same. In the above 3 laws base is a.

Note: Any number (except zero) raised to the power zero is 1. That is 20=1, 24560=1

Let's see an example of using these laws: Simplify \frac{(2^3)^4\times8}{2^{10}\times32}

Solution: 

\\Here\ 8=2\times2\times2=2^3\\32=2\times2\times2\times2\times2=2^5

Now the question becomes 

\frac{(2^3)^4\times2^8}{2^{10}\times2^5}

Now applying the three laws mentioned above

\frac{(2^3)^4\times2^8}{2^{10}\times2^5}=\frac{(2)^{12}\times2^3}{2^{10}\times2^5}=\frac{(2)^{15}}{2^{15}}=2^{15-15}=2^0=1
