Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you have to apply exponent rule \[\huge\rm (x^m)^n = x^{m \times n}\] multiply exponents and then reduce the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(5^{\frac{3}{4})\frac{2}{3}} =5^{\frac{3}{4} \cdot \frac{2}{3}}\] first look at the fraction multiplication action going on there: \[\frac{3}{4} \cdot \frac{2}{3}\] can you simplify that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1basically you need to simplify 3/3 and 2/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and write these down 'n ur notes \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n = x^{m+n}\]\[\large\rm (x^m)^n =x^{m \times n}\]\[\large\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }= x^{mn}\]
