## When you have a parentheses and an exponent outside the parentheses?

An exponent applies only to the value to its immediate left. When a quantity in parentheses is raised to a power, the exponent applies to everything inside the parentheses. To multiply two terms with the same base, add their exponents. To raise a power to a power, multiply the exponents.

How do you solve fractions with exponents?

Fractional exponents. How to solve fractional exponents. Simplifying fractional exponents; Simplifying fractions with exponents; Adding fractional exponents is done by raising each exponent first and then adding: a n/m + b k/j. Example: 3 3/2 + 2 5/2 = ā(3 3) + ā

#### How to multiply fractions with variables and exponents?

Start with m=1 and n=1,then slowly increase n so that you can see 1/2,1/3 and 1/4

• Then try m=2 and slide n up and down to see fractions like 2/3 etc
• Now try to make the exponent ā1
• Lastly try increasing m,then reducing n,then reducing m,then increasing n: the curve should go around and around
