Answer to Problem 22RE

  r10s6

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Simplify the expression.

  (r2s4/3r1/3s)6

Calculation:

For a real number x&y and rational numbers n&m use following exponent properties.

  a)xmxn=xm+nb)(xm)n=xmnc)xn=1xnd)(xy)n=xnyn

Now consider,

  (r2s4/3r1/3s)6

  =(r21/3s4/31)6=(r5/3s)6=(r5/3×6)s6=r10s6

Hence, the simplified expression is, r10s6
