Rational Exponents Fraction Exponents

2
**Radical expression and Exponents**

By definition of Radical Expression. The index of the Radical is 3.

3
**How would we simplify this expression?**

What does the fraction exponent do to the number? The number can be written as a Radical expression, with an index of the denominator.

4
**The Rule for Rational Exponents**

5

7
**Write each Radical using Rational Exponents**

8
**Write each Radical using Rational Exponents**

9
**What about Negative exponents**

Negative exponents make inverses.

10
**What if the numerator is not 1 Always remember:**

Evaluate

11
**What if the numerator is not 1**

Evaluate

12
**What if the numerator is not 1**

Evaluate

13
**For any nonzero real number b, and integer m and n**

Make sure the Radical express is real, no b<0 when n is even.

14
**Simplify each expression**

No fraction in the denominators.

Radical form: Do # 68

21
**Simplifying exponential expressions**

If in radical form, transform to exponential form Simplify by applying the exponent to each base. Express with positive exponents or radical form, depending on the directions

22
**Express in simplest form**

Make exponential first!

23
**Express in simplest form**

Make exponential first! Now simplify
