Solving Equations with Rational Exponents

Slide 2: 

In order to solve equations with rational exponents you need to remember the rules for raising a power to a power and the multiplicative identity property . Remember: When you raise a power to a power you multiply the exponents. Also: We will need to combine the two properties in order to solve the equations.

Slide 3: 

Solve. 1. Raise each side of the equation to the reciprocal power of the exponent. When multiplied the powers become 1. The simplify the right side of the equation.

Slide 4: 

Solve. 2. Raise each side of the equation to the 2/3. Simplify.

Slide 5: 

Solve. 3. Before raising both sides of the equation to the 4/3, you must first isolate the power. In this case, divide by 3.
