Hi There,
I am trying to relearn maths and am going through Khan academy.
I have gotten to algebra one and mostly I am understanding it however I have hit the below problem and cannot figure it out.
Simplify the following:
. . . . .\(\displaystyle \dfrac{1}{a^{\frac{5}{6}}}\)
Solution:
. . . . .\(\displaystyle \begin{align}\dfrac{1}{a^{\frac{5}{6}}}\, &=\, \left(a^{\frac{5}{6}}\right)^{1}\\
\\
&=\, a^{\frac{5}{6}}\end{align}\)
I was wondering if anyone could explain the full workings of how the numerator becomes 1 to me please?
Thanks so much for your time.
Regards
Aaron
