Fractional Exponents Worksheets

How Do You Evaluate Fractional Exponents? Exponents related questions can be trickier sometimes. It is quite vital to focus its every question well. Suppose the value ½(25/9). It means we will find the square root of 25/9. You have a question ½(25/9), or values with square root will have the same meanings. As per exponent rule, if a fractional have power, you will assume it for both numerator & denominator. ½(25) / ½(9). Denominator = 5 power(2) = 25 (you will multiply 5 two times. ½(25)=5. Numerator = ½(9) what will the number by which if we multiple it two times so, we will have the answer 9. That will be 3 power(2) = 3 x 3 = 9. If we merge, the value will be ½(25) / ½(9) = 5/9. It means the square root of (25/9) or the value ½(25/9) will be 5/9. Here, exponent means power. The exponent ½ especially, you will always consider its square root by placing it sign prominently. If you have a value, for example, - ¼(81/256), guest, what should you do here? You will take the reciprocal of the actual value, and it becomes ¼(256/81). Then, you will proceed with the whole process as above.
