Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Assuming s is in the correct domain: \[\frac{\sqrt{s}}{s^2} = s^{\frac{1}{2}}\cdot s^{2} = s^{\frac{3}{2}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\sqrt{x}=x^{1/2}\) Also \(\frac{x^a}{x^b}=x^{ab}\) So putting those together... \[\frac{\sqrt{x}}{x^2}=\frac{x^{1/2}}{x^2}=x^{1/2  2}=x^{3/2}\] Hope this helps. :)
