Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes. When the exponent to a variable is negative, you find the reciprocal. Making B x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Does that make sense?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then isn't it x^1/1?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wow, okay. so it's divide by 1, which make it just x^1 and x^1 is just x, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Now, you have to simplify the rest of the options to figure out which is equivalent. Once they are all simplified, it is easy to tell.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1For C and D, you have to remember that when exponents are multiplied together, you add. When they are divided by each other you subtract. Since A is already simplified, you dont have to worry about that just yet.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So what did you get for C?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is d also just x then?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because the exponents add up to 3/3, which is 1 right? or am i missing something

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No you are correct, I was just making sure you knew why.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh, thank you! So then it's x^1, (or just x) :D right??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll still try the others, since it's just good to know how to do them. For future reference. If that's alright, could you make sure I get it right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'll try to simplify C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, not quite. There is the radical to consider

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt[10]{x^{11}}\] like that ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not sure what to do with the radical... or is that all i can do to simplify?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, since it is technically x^10 * x^1, you can take the 10 out but it still wouldnt be equivalent to B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hm, alright then.. how about A then? can i do anything with that?

zeesbrat3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's already simplified

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right. So then I guess I have my answer. Thank you so much for all of your help, it's really appreciated!
