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:
5243 = 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
