simplest radical

- Nnesha

\[\huge\rm \frac{ 1 }{ -\frac{ 3 }{ 8 } }\] is it ur question ?? :o ;

- anonymous

yesss :)

waoo
so multiply numerator by the reciprocal of the denominator fraction

- anonymous

okhay have the steps in order so she may understande

- anonymous

understand

- Nnesha

u sure u posted the right question ?

- Nnesha

example \[ \huge\rm \frac{ a }{ \frac{ b }{ c} } = a \times \frac{ c }{ b }\] multiply top withe the reciprocal of the bottom fraction that's ti

|dw:1438037730519:dw|

- Nnesha

|dw:1438037892701:dw|what is that ?

- Nnesha

is it x ?

- anonymous

1
x
−3
6 yes its X

- anonymous

You have to get rid of the negative so flip the fraction

@nerlineg what did You think you did next?

- anonymous

|dw:1438038053310:dw|

- Nnesha

i get it now thanks

- anonymous

this is how the problem looks like

- anonymous

@nerlineg what i meant is what do you think you do from|dw:1438038146115:dw|

- Nnesha

\[\huge\rm \frac{ 1 }{ x^\frac{- 3 }{6 } }\]
like this ?

- Nnesha

first exponent rule \[\huge\rm \frac{ 1 }{ x^{-m} } = x^m\] flip the fraction to change negative to positive exponent

- anonymous

thanks for copying my answer XD

- Nnesha

and then apply this exponent rule \[\huge\rm x^\frac{ m }{ n } = \sqrt[n]{x^m}\]

- Nnesha

that is not copy of your answer your answer is totally different

- anonymous

@nerlineg after its (3/8)/1, its just 3/8

- anonymous

ok lol no arguing you guyss

- anonymous

@Nnesha flip the fraction to change negative to positive exponent
me: You have to get rid of the negative so flip the fraction

- anonymous

but what do you do after the exponent rule ?

- Nnesha

thanks for telling me i didn't know that ..

- Nnesha

you need to convert exponent to root

- Nnesha

\[\huge\rm x^\frac{ m }{ n } = \sqrt[n]{x^m}\] like this

- anonymous

then we are done right?

- Nnesha

yep after that exponent rule^
let me know what you get :=)

- anonymous

wait... you sure you convert exponent too root ?

- Nnesha

depends on the statement

- anonymous

depends on the problem ?

- Nnesha

yes like what they are asking for
or do you have options ?

- anonymous

they basically want me to tell the step on how to simplest that radical

- anonymous

simply the radical

- Nnesha

nice thanks
so yeah we need 2 more steps

- Nnesha

so after applying first exponent rule we get \[\huge\rm x^\frac{ 3 }{ 6 }\]
now reduce the fraction
3/6 = ?

- anonymous

thaaaaank you !!!!! yess that's the same thing i got

- Nnesha

my pleasure :=)

- anonymous

but why all this people viewing my thing but not commenting ? that's wired lol but okhay thanks again..

- Nnesha

ikr!! LOL i was scared lol LOL

- anonymous

they sill here LOLOL ommg ! @Nnesha

- Nnesha

hmm no they r gone :o

- Nnesha

refresh the page ;)

- anonymous

oh yeah you right @Nnesha
