To multiply or divide algebraic terms, multiply or divide the numbers as normal and multiply or divide the variables by using the laws of indices.

To divide algebraic expressions, use laws of indices. a^m / a^n = a^(m-n), so when dividing subtract the powers. For example, a^5 / a^2 = a^3.

To multiply algebraic expressions, use the laws of indices if the variables are the same. The rule is a^m x a^n = a^(m+n), so when multiplying two terms, add the powers. For example, a^2 x a^3 = a^5.
