Constant: | A quantity that does not change its value. |

Distributive Property: | The sum of two addends multiplied by a number is the sum of the product of each addend and the number. |

Exponent: | The number of times a number or expression (called base) is used as a factor of repeated multiplication. Also called the power. |
