Ah thanks, I think I get it now. Just a couple more questions: x^3 + x^-3 = does this equal x^0? And: (8a^-3b^6)^1/3 = is this 2a^-1b^2? Thank you!!!!! sooo muchhh

Just a couple more questions: x^3 + x^-3 = does this equal x^0? no, the rule works for products, not sums. this is simply now combine the fractions And: (8a^-3b^6)^1/3 = is this 2a^-1b^2? Thank you!!!!! sooo muchhh correct EDIT: the princess' is even nicer if you don't like negative powers.
