How do you write #2^(7 / 8)/2^(1/4) # as a radical?
first do division
then it is equivalent to the radical
Using the law of indices for dividing if the bases are the same, we can simplify the f,raction by subtracting the indices to get
The law of indices involving fractional indices states
The denominator becomes the root and the numerator becomes the power - it can be inside or outside the root sign.
