Exponentiation of fractions
To raise a fraction to a power, it is necessary to raise the numerator to this degree, and then raise the denominator of the fraction to this degree. Write the first result to the numerator, and the second to the denominator. Before exponentiation, it is necessary to check whether it is possible to reduce the fraction, this will greatly facilitate the calculations.
How to raise an ordinary fraction to a power:
For example, take the fraction 46; and raise it to a power equal to 2.
According to the rule, we raise both the numerator and the denominator to the second power, that is, we raise 4 to the power of 2, and we raise 6 to the power of 2, and we find the answer 16.
