#1. Peter did not simplify his answer completely because he did not reach the conclusion of \[x ^{12}\] second part of the problem is that \[x^3 x^3 x^3 x^3 \neq x^3 + x^3 + x^3 + x^3\] so Peter's work would NOT be the same.

\[x^3 + x^3 + x^3 + x^3 = 4x^3\]

#2. use property of negative exponents in addition to fractional exponents. #3. use quotient property since the base is the same.

#4.\[\sqrt[3]{x^3} = x ^{3*(1/3)}\] involves powers of a product \[x ^{1/3}x ^{1/3}x ^{1/3} = x ^{(1/3) + (1/3) + (1/3)} = x ^{3/3} = x\] involves product of powers \[1/x ^{1} = x ^{1} = x\] involves negative exponents

\[\frac{ 1 }{\sqrt[3]{x ^{6}} }=\frac{ 1 }{\left( x ^{6} \right)^{\frac{ 1 }{3 }} }=\frac{ 1 }{\left( x \right)^{6*\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }} } =\frac{ 1 }{ x ^{2 } } =x ^{2}\] i think i have cleared everything,if any doubt ask me.

\[\frac{ x ^{\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }} }{ x ^{\frac{ 4 }{9 }} }=x ^{\frac{ 2 }{3 }}*x ^{\frac{ 4 }{9 }}\] \[=x ^{\left( \frac{ 2 }{ 3 }\frac{ 4 }{9 } \right)}\] take L.C.M and solve.

Okay no I don't get it ..... None of this makes sense :( What's being added and what's being multiplied here ?

for #3, when you have the same bases, and it is a division problem, the powers are subtracted. the power from the denominator is subtracted from the power in the numerator like so \[x ^{2/3}/x ^{4/9} = x ^{(2/3)(4/9)}\]
