This week we learned about rational exponent and how to solve them.
rational exponents are numbers with fraction powers which you could turn them into radical form by having following the rule of “flower power”. Flower power means that the bottom is always the root and the top is always the power and to term them into power form you have to do likewise from radical form.
this is how to solve a rational exponent.
So the answer of 16 to the power of 3/4 is 8
this week we learned how to simplify mixed and entire radicals.
you first find the perfect square that multiplies to your radical then separate your perfect square and and radicand. the perfect square always stay in the outside
so equals in simple form
from this week I learned how to prime factorization works by dividing it until you get 1.
by using factor tree, you could get smaller number called Prime Number, which is a natural number greater than 1 that has no positive divisors other than 1 and itself.
so the prime factorization of 54 is
and that is what I learned this week 🙂
