### Grade 7 - Mathematics3.6 Fractional or Rational Exponents

 Radicals (square roots, cube roots, fourth root etc) or Fractional exponents A fractional exponent like 1/n means to take the nth root nÖx = x1/n Number to power of half is the square root Ö4 = 41/2 Number to the power of 1/3 is the cube root 3Ö8 = 81/3 Number to the power of 1/4 is the fourth root 4Ö16 = 161/4 In a fractional exponent, the top number is the power, and the lower number is the root. Example: 82/3 In the fractional exponent 2/3, 2 is the power and 1/3 is the cube root we can either find the cube root of 8 first or square 8 first (81/3)2 = 22 = 4 (82)1/3 = 3Ö64 = 4 Decimal powers can be written as fractional exponents. Example: 40.5 = 41/2 = 2 Do not write square root of a negative number. Example: Ö-4 They are expressed as complex numbers. Directions: Answer the following questions. Also write at least ten examples for fractional exponents - square roots, cube roots, fourth root and decimal exponents.
