    Exponents.

    Hi guys.

    I have some problems with the following questions:

    a) Rewite X 1/5 without an exponent
    b) Rewite with a negitive exponent 2/ x*5
    c)Rewite with a fractional exponent square root m*3

    Any suggestions?

    Im stuck!

    I expect you are trying to write x^{\frac{1}{5}}, \frac{2}{x^5} and \sqrt{m^3}.

    a) Remember that a^{\frac{m}{n}} = \sqrt[n]{a^m}.

    b) Remember that \frac{1}{a^m} = a^{-m}.

    c) Same as a).
