Analytic Geometry Unit 4 Worksheet #5 Name____________________________ Simplify the expressions using the properties of radicals and rational exponents Ex) ( ) Ex) ( ( ) ) ( Ex) Ex) √ Ex) √ √ ) √ √ √ √ Ex) [( ) ] Ex) √( ) ( ) Ex) ( ) [( ) ] ( ) (√ ) √ √ √ √ √ Simplify the expressions. Assume all variables are positive Ex) √ Ex) ( ) To solve equations such as , we take the cube root of both sides. Alternately, we can raise both sides of the equation to the power. That is, we raise both sides of the equations to the power that is the inverse ( or reciprocal) of the power in the problem. To solve , we can either square both sides and then take the cube root, we can take the cube root of both sides and then square them, or we can raise both sides to the power. ( ) ( ) Rewrite each of the following using rational exponents and use inverses to solve for the variable. (You may need to use a calculator for some of them. Be careful!)
