## anonymous one year ago How can an expression written in either radical form or rational exponent form be rewritten to fit the other form?

1. anonymous

roots and exponents are "inverses" of sorts. for example $$\large \sqrt[4]{x^4}=x\\\huge \sqrt[\cancel{4}]{x^\cancel{4}}=x$$

2. anonymous

also recall the property $$\huge \sqrt[n]{x}=x^{\frac{1}{n}}$$
