Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would bvery grateful if some one can help me become fimilar with this site. It seem like it can help a ton of people. I was wondering if someone could tell me how the view the replies?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hello! So whenever you have something to the negative one power, like what you have, this is (in your case) indicating that you can "flip" whatever is on the numerator to the denominator or vice versa. So technically with your problem you would first distribute the negative one like so: (3^1)/(4^1)+2/3 So then using what I said previously, it will now look like this 4/3+2/3 I leave the rest up to you :D.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I have \[4/3+2/3=6/3=2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Exactly. So did you understand how you would do the process if you got another problem similar to this one, say (2^1)/5+3/10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No how did you get the 4/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so you know how I said you could distribute the 1, let's start from there. So we have (3^1)/(4^1). Now the 3 in the numerator, since it is to the power of the negative one, can now be flipped to the denominator. So we have: 1/(3*(4)^1). So we took care of the three, because once you flip it, the negative sign can go away. Now time to take care of the 4^1. Since it is in the denominator and 4 is to the power of negative one, we can flip the four to the numerator (but be sure to leave the three, that is no longer to a negative power, alone). So now we have 4/3. Did that help a little more?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So for the example that I typed what would you think you should do first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would I go (2^1)/(4^1)/5+3?10 ??? Then

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So here is the original: (2^1)/5+3/10 I would first look at how only the negative two is to the negative power.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I would have (2^1)(3^1)+3/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0will that give me 3/5 + 3/10?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05/2 + 3/5+ = 8/7 is this right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2^1)/5+3/10 So I would only flip the 2 to the denominator. So since multiplication is the opposite of division we will have 1 in the numerator of the fraction and 2*5 on the denominator in the first fraction. In otherwords, 1/(2*5)+3/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i will have 1/10 + 3/10 =3/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Close again. It's actually 4/10 (you only add stuff in the numerator if the denominator is the same number).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No Problem, by the way.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that is true I forgot about that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So key things to keep in mind. Numbers where some number in the numerator is to the 1 power like 4^1 will equal 1/4. Numbers like 1/(6^1) where the number is in the denominator will equal 6.
