Essential Question: Explain the meaning of using radical expressions
Another way to write a radical expression is to use a radical exponent. Examples: Radical FormExponent Form = = =
Rational Exponents can be simplified just like their radical counterparts. Examples:
Y OUR TURN Simplify Note that: 1) Like variables, you can add exponents when the base is the same 2) You can multiply bases when the exponent is the same
A rational exponent may have a numerator other than 1. The property (a m ) n = a mn shows how to rewrite such an expression. or Basically, the numerator is the power a number is being raised to. The denominator is the root a number is being taken to.
We can convert between the two forms Write the exponential expression in radical form: Write the radical expressions in exponential form:
