So i realised that exponents are the same thing as indices which I put down to the different countries that we all come from.

Anyway - I have this question which i didn't really know how to approach:

solve for 'x':

x^3/2 = 8^1/2 * 9^1/3 / 6^4/3

I did some working and got:

x^3/2 = 2^3/4 * 3^-1/4

I'm not sure if my working was right, but even so, I don't know how to proceed with this question.
