root expressions.

Rational exponents are exponents that contain fractions. We can also rewrite them using radicals ! Try finding the patterns below…use your calculator to evaluate the following!

Practice converting back and forth between exponential form and radical form. Use the formula above to help you!

**What is another way we can think about this?**

Recall Exponents:

What if we had something that looks like this…

16 ๐๐ 16

2

Remember, this is saying that I want to multiply the base number out 2 times or write out the expression using 2 pieces!

Now we know what our answer is from the last slide. However think about what we said to the left. This is asking us to split 16 up into 2 equal pieces…but we only want 1 out of the 2 . Hence the term ROOT when you write it as a radical!

This is now saying that I know 81 can be written as 4 equal pieces and I only want 1 of those 4 pieces.

How can I break 81 down into 4 equal pieces?
