-243^1/5

<-- Enter Number or variable Raised to a fractional power such as a^b/c

Term 1
Simplify the rational exponent -2431/5

Analyze Fractional Exponent:
The rule of fractional exponents states that ab/c is evaluated as follows:
ab/c = (ca)b
That is equivalent to saying we take the cth root of a, and then raise that value to the power of b
In this case, a = -243, b = 1, and c = 5

Evaluate the 5th root of -243:
5-243 = -3 since -35 = -243 as seen in our Exponent Lesson

Raise this value to the power of 1:
Therefore, we can write -2431/5 = -3
