Recall that the square root of negative one is defined as i, so if we're doing an even root of a negative value, we'll have no real solution, BUT if it's an odd root of a negative value, we'll have a negative answer. For fractional exponents, rewrite the expression in radical form. Apply the root to each part of the term, as done in the examples here, to simplify.
