Write in the form x^n:
and think about the laws of exponents. Division of two bases to their powers is the same as subtracting the powers.
So for part b it’s x^3?? That makes sense now thanks. Part a is still confusing me sorry, so if the power is a fraction it’s the root of the number but the denominator determines which root it is, is the answer (x^5)^1/2??
(HINT: Use the last formula that user tHe237046 provided in post).
