Simplifying Radicals using Rational Exponents - Problem 3 414 views
Any expression with a radical, or root, can be re-written in exponential form where the exponent will be rational, or a fraction. The exponent rule that defines fractional exponents is critical- be very precise with which part of the exponent goes where. Once you're fluid with turning a root into fractional form, you'll be ready to do more advanced fractional exponent work, like embedded roots or solving exponential equations.
