## BioHazard9064 one year ago I really need help with this question. How are rational exponents related to integer exponents

1. IrishBoy123

if $$\large r =\frac{n}{d}$$ then $$\large x^r = x^{\frac{n}{d}} = (x^{\frac{1}{d}})^{n} = (x^{n})^{\frac{1}{d}} = \sqrt[d]{x^n}$$

2. BioHazard9064

ok

3. BioHazard9064

is that all there is to it?

4. IrishBoy123

yes
