    Which questions are you having trouble with? My recommendations for exponents is to to put everything on one "line." In other words, when you have a fraction, change the notation so that everything is on one line:

    \frac{a\sqrt{b}}{b} = a\sqrt{b}b^{-1}

    Change any radicals to straight exponents:

    ab^{\frac{1}{2}}b^{-1}

    Add up the exponents for like bases:

    ab^{\frac{-1}{2}}

    Depending on what the question wants, change it back into a fraction and radical form:

    \frac{a}{\sqrt{b}}
