Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 1 }{ x ^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }} }\] After reducing this is where we're at correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, I need to write it all out, to get to simplest radical form.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just like the rule above of negative exponents works, this one also works: 1a−n=an A negative exponent in the denominator, is a positive exponent in the numerator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Notice we have a similar thing to this last rule. We have a fraction with 1 over. Then in the denominator we have x to a negative exponent. It changes into just x to the positive exponent in the numerator, and the denominator disappears.
