    Help. I think for the first step I'd have to divide by the reciprocal to get rid of the negative?

    Okay i understand now. First, you can reduce 3/6

    Do you know how to deal with a negative exponent?

    Okay you seriously just confused me, can you walk me through each one of those steps... I'm still at the beginning.

    signs okay do you have to write it all out or can i just give you the answer?

    \[\frac{ 1 }{ x ^{\frac{ -1 }{ 2 }} }\] After reducing this is where we're at correct?

    No, I need to write it all out, to get to simplest radical form.

    Just 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.

    Notice 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.

    So wait it's just \[\frac{ 1 }{ x ^{1} }\]

    Oh okay, I see now. You confused me by saying that the denominator disappears.
