Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is it your question \[\huge\rm \frac{ 1}{ x^\frac{ 3 }{ 6 }}\] or \[ \huge \frac{ \frac{ 1 }{ 3 } }{ x^6 }\] which one is right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright we already solved this question i guess 5 days ago.. hmm :=) well first of all reduce the fraction

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right now apply exponent rule \[\huge\rm x^{m} = \frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\]

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well there you can't leave the *negative exponent * so that's why apply that exponent rule move x^1/2 at the top

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so that's why i didn't use *flip the fraction* first step reduce the fraction you get \[\huge\rm \frac{ 1 }{ x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright so now flip the fraction *exponent rule* \[\huge\rm \frac{\color{Red}{ 1} }{\color{red}{ x}^\frac{ 1 }{ 2} }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\huge\rm \frac{ x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } }{ 1 } = x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\] doesn't matter if you write one or not at the denominator so forget about one now you just have \[\huge\rm x^\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is it \[\huge\rm x^3 \times x^3 \times x^3\] equal to \[x^3 \times 3 \times 3 \] ?

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes right now bec when you multiply same bases you should add their exponents \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n \times x^z = x^{m+n+z}\]
