## ASVAB Math: Exponents Chapter Objectives

The Math Knowledge subtest of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) is used to determine fluency of basic mathematical practices. This test is taken throughout the year by those hoping to join the U.S. military, including many high school-level candidates. On the pencil and paper version of the test, there are 25 multiple-choice questions in this subtest that must be completed within 24 minutes. Those numbers vary somewhat on the computerized version, but the questions in this subtest account for just over 11% of the exam in both. Objectives for this chapter include:

• Understanding the purpose of exponential expressions
• Simplifying expressions using the power of zero and other methods
• How to multiply and divide expressions
• Defining and using scientific notation

Many questions on the Math Knowledge subtest of the ASVAB will present you with a mathematical equation that you will need to solve using your knowledge of exponents. Dive into our video lessons so you won't have any problem tackling exponential expressions on the test!
