Students will spend a good bit of time balancing equations and determining variables in both expressions and equations. Students find this difficult because we are often focused on finding the value of a part of an exponent. Before this series of worksheets students have just been asked to work with bases that were raised to a power. We will often use this property in this section: If bx = by, then x = y, (where b=0 and b is not equal to 0). The relevant properties have been provided.
These worksheets explain how to solve equations containing exponential expressions. Exponent math is a must before attempting any of the problems on these worksheets.
