    While it does appear that way, can you PROVE that this pattern always holds? I would suggest induction - if you can prove this, then I would agree with your answer.

    Re: exponents

    I looked up induction on google and the examples didn't help that much.
    I would really like to learn how to prove this using induction.
    Can you give me some help?

    Thanks.
