Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its just making the fraction simpler by dividing top and bottom by a common factor The common factor in this case is 3. so dw:1442936965530:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no that is in exponent form The 1/2 is the exponent. I wrote it in brackets but you dont have to.
