# Simplify Exponents With Fractional Base Worksheet

## 7 problems

To simplify exponents with fractional bases, a basic understanding of exponents is a prerequisite for students. They should understand that an exponent represents repeated multiplication. In some cases, we might encounter a fractional base raised to an exponent. It's important to note that when simplifying exponents with fractional bases, it's always a good idea to convert them to a more manageable form. This could mean expressing them as a simplified fraction, depending on the situation.
