The Properties of Rational Exponents follow from the definition of exponent. They are the same properties you worked with previously, when the exponents were integers. Now you can apply these properties and convert between exponential and radical forms. See the video to learn more.
Working with exponents can be lots of fun, as long as you understand how they work. In this tutorial you'll see how exponents add when you multiply the same number raised to different exponents!
Sometimes you'll see a number with an exponent raised to another exponent, and the first time you see it, you probably think it's a typo! But it's not a typo, it's a real thing, and there's a really nice trick for making it simpler that you'll see in the video.
Working with exponents can be lots of fun, as long as you understand how they work. In this tutorial you'll see how exponents add when you divide the same number raised to different exponents!
Do you ever panic when you see a negative number in the exponent of some mathematical expression? Well if you do, then panic no more! This tutorial will help you overcome your fear, and will help you understand what negative exponents actually mean :)
There's a great trick for raising a product of two number to an exponent, and this tutorial shows you exactly that trick works.
Got a fraction raised to a power? Learn how to split that exponent and put it in the numerator and denominator of your fraction using the power of a quotient rule. This tutorial shows you how!
You can rewrite an expression with a rational exponent a few different ways. This can come in handy when your solving a problem involving rational exponents. This tutorial shows you how it works! You can even practice with examples!
To find the cube root of a number, start by breaking that number into its prime factorization. Rewrite those factors using exponents and break up the radicals using the Product Property of Radicals. Simplify and you're done! Watch this tutorial to see the entire process step-by-step.
