Simplify. Express all exponents in positive form.
sorry if this is hard to read but 8 is an exponent. 3/4 and -1/4 are fractions and exponents too. X and Y are multiplied. Thanks!
since you are multiplying and not adding all you have to do is multiply your exponents
(x^(3/4)^8 = 3/4*8=24/4=6 ... x^6
y^1/4 ^8 = 8*1/4=8/4=2 .... y^2
is your answer, however, you can only do this with multiplication and division if you are adding you must expand then simplify (x+1)^2 does not equal x^2+1 it is x^2+2x+1
But is this in radical form? I thought radicals had square roots.
sorry i forgot my negative
x^6 / y^2
its only radical if its a fraction as an exponent such as x^1/4 is 4(sqrt(x))
the 4 is suppose to be small in the top left of the sqrt
