Use the rules of exponents to simplify the expression.
Simplify the expression. Write your answers with positive exponents. Assume that all variables represent positive real numbers.

guidance with formatting. Be aware with regards to the square root
symbol, you will notice that it only shows the front part of a
radical and not the top bar. Thus, it is impossible to tell how much
of an expression is included in the radical itself unless you use
parenthesis. For example, if we have √12 + 9 it is not enough for
us to know if the 9 is under the radical with the 12 or not.
Therefore, we must specify whether we mean it to say √(12) + 9
or √(12 + 9), as there is a big difference between the two.
This distinction is important in your notation.
solution is to type the letters “sqrt” in place of the radical
and use parenthesis to indicate how much is included in the radical
as described in the second method above. The example above would
appear as either “sqrt(12) + 9” or “sqrt(12 + 9)”
depending on what we needed it to say.
