Rational Exponents And Radical Form

Rational Exponents To Radical Form
If you have 4 to the 4/3 power you must change it to radical form because you don't want to have a fraction as an exponent. To put it into radical form you put the denominator (3) on the outside of the radical. Now the numerator goes on the inside of the radical as an exponent to the 4. Now you must solve the cube root.
Radical Form To Rational Exponents
You have r to the 3rd power in a cubed root and you want to know what it would look like in rational exponent form. You must take the number on the outside of the root (2) and put it as the denominator. Now the number on the inside will be your numerator (3) and r will be your base.
