R.7

Notation for a1/n

If a is a real number, n is a positive integer, and a1/n is a real number, then

Notation for am/n

If a is a real number, m is an integer, n is a positive integer, and is a real number, then

Principle Square Root / Principle nth Root

A principle square root (principle nth root)isALWAYSpositive!!!

Evaluating___

If n is an even positive integer, then

If n is an odd positive integer, then

Use absolute value only when necessary.

Product Rule

Quotient Rule

Power Rule

If the indices are the same, multiply the radicands (numbers under the radical).

CAUTION !!!!!

You cannot distribute exponents over a sum!!!!!!
