Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3in general, \[b^{n}=\frac{1}{b^n}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3i picked \(b\) as a variable you can use anyone you prefer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't know what else there is to say. What don't you understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk i just dont know how to do it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This is what your problem looks like, right? \[\frac{ (3x)^{1} }{ 4 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Did you know that \[x^{1}=\frac{ 1 }{ x }\]?

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Same thing. \[x^1=x\] just like \[3^{1}=3\]

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2One thing first. Whenever you want to say that x has an exponential value of 1, you should type x^1 or x to the power of 1 rather than x1 because x1 is just subtraction.

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Is this what you're saying?\[x^{1}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^{1} }\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Then you are right. But, as I said, \[x^{1}=x\] So you can just change the \[x^{1}\] to \[x\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2This means that \[x^{−1}=\frac{ 1 }{ x }\]

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Rewrite this so that there are only positive exponents:\[\frac{ 1 }{ x^{1} }\]

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No. General rule of thumb. If you see a negative number as an exponent, flip the term(with the exponent) over the fraction bar and make the exponent positive

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so I flip x^1 over to the numerator and get \[x^{1}\] then I take away the negative sign which gets me \[x^{1}\] or \[x\]

wild

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so every time there an equation like this \[1 \over x ^1\] you have to flip

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes. But ONLY if the exponent is negative. Next problem:\[\frac{ 1 }{ x^{2} }\]

wild

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so I fliped x^21 over to the numerator and get x−2 then I take away the negative sign which gets me x2

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2x^2 is right. Next one:\[x ^{3}\]

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I think it's a silly mistake, but it was x^3, not x^2

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Might be because the number was so small.

wild

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh yeah it was a little as i looked closer it was a 3

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Next one(and the important one to help you with your problem):\[\frac{ 4 }{ x^{2} }\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Why don't you bring x^2 to the numerator and take away the negative sign?

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Exactly. Now can you do this?\[\frac{ (3x)^{1} }{ 4 }\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If you really don't understand, no is a good answer too.

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2remember what we did with \[x^{2}\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2We flipped it into the denominator and took away the negative sign to get \[\frac{ 1 }{ x^{2} }\]

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Can you apply this to your problem or should I just explain?

wild

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but 3 is a numerator too it can turn to 1

wild

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah you should explain i get everything you taught me i just can put it all together

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Do you agree that \[(3x)^{1}=\frac{ 1 }{ (3x)^{1} }\]or \[\frac{ 1 }{ (3x) }\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Errr I mean that it equals both but the lower one without the exponent of 1 is simplified

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2But you agree with it, right?

wild
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i should've looked at it as a whole

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now do you agree that \[(3x)^{−1}\times \frac{ 1 }{ 4 }=\frac{ (3x)^{−1} }{ 4 }\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so if you substitute the (3x)^1 with \[\frac{ 1 }{ 3x}\] in the expression, you get \[\frac{ 1 }{ 4(3x) }\]

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and that simplifies to\[\frac{ 1 }{ 12x }\]

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2But if you think about it, all I actually did was flip the (3x)^1 over to the denominator and take away the negative signdw:1363833108473:dw

wild

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it the same thing as multiplying 1/3x and 1/4

Grazes
 2 years ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, but the point is that I just flipped it over and that it's incredibly simple.

Grazes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Everyone else does it like:dw:1363833370136:dw
