what is 1/x∧-3/6 and how do you get to that answer?

Accepted Solution

Answer:[tex]x^\frac{1}{2}[/tex]or[tex]\sqrt{x}[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:[tex]\frac{1}{x^\frac{-3}{6}}[/tex]I'm going to reduce -3/6 to -1/2 by dividing top and bottom of -3/6 by 3.[tex]\frac{1}{x^\frac{-1}{2}}[/tex]Now I'm going to get rid of the negative exponent by moving x to the top; so -1/2 will change to 1/2 instead when doing this:[tex]1x^\frac{1}{2}[/tex][tex]x^\frac{1}{2}[/tex][tex]\sqrt{x}[/tex]Please let know if I read the problem right:[tex]\frac{1}{x^\frac{-3}{6}}[/tex]
