Properties of Exponents - Revisited Properties of Rational Exponents Let a and b be positive real numbers. Let m and n be rational numbers.

Use the properties of rational exponents to simplify: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Simplifying variable expressions: You can apply the properties of radicals to expressions involving variables. When the value of a variable is negative, you may need to use the absolute value to find the nth root. Simplify:
