Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1let's start on the first problem.. that the fourth root of 7^9 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm wondering if the exponent rule can work \[x^{a}x^{b} \rightarrow x^{a+b}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and we need the fourth root.. we have 7^9, but we need a fourth root... we can split this up if the 4th root is required .. We need anything to the fourth power.. so I let x = 7 and a =4. If the total exponent is 9 who is going to be my b? it's like solving a +b = 9 (for the exponent portion) 4+b=9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait.. it turns out that there is more than 1 7^4 I'm going to use the exponent rule again \[\large 7^{8+1} \rightarrow 7^{8}7^1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so rewriting this briefly in exponential form \[\LARGE 7^{\frac{8}{4}}7^{\frac{1}{4}}\]
