I have a couple of properties that need to be proven. Use the definition a^x = e^(x log a) to derive the following properties of general exponentials: a) (ab)^x = (a^x)(b^x) b) (a^x)(a^y) = a^(x+y) c) (a^x)^y = (a^y)^x = a^(xy) Thank you

(ab)^x=e^(xlogab)=e^(x*(loga+logb))=e^(xloga+xlogb )=e^(xloga)*e^(xlogb)=a^x*b^x Hope this gives you a hint how to do the other ones. Alina
