    \[x^\frac{ m }{ n }=\sqrt[n]{x^m}\] Just dealing with the part in parentheses for now,|dw:1439420672181:dw|

    right and now use this rule that says you multiply the exponents for a power to a power \[(x^a)^b=x^{ab}\]

    yes. rational exponent form just means turning the radical into a fractional exponent

    so thismeans "into an expression with a rational exponent" in fractional exponent?

    yes. rational = fraction

    hey @peachpi do you simplify?

    you do if it can be simplified. 35/6 can't be simplified though
