# How do you evaluate the expression 5^0*5^5*5^-3 using the properties?

Apr 29, 2017

#### Answer:

See the solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Use this rule or property of exponents to evaluate the expression:

${x}^{\textcolor{red}{a}} \times {x}^{\textcolor{b l u e}{b}} = {x}^{\textcolor{red}{a} + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}}$

${5}^{\textcolor{red}{0}} \cdot {5}^{\textcolor{b l u e}{5}} \cdot {5}^{\textcolor{g r e e n}{- 3}} = {5}^{\textcolor{red}{0} + \textcolor{b l u e}{5} + \textcolor{g r e e n}{- 3}} = {5}^{2} = 25$
