Rational Exponent Rules
This video explains the rules for rational exponents. The rules for multiplying and dividing exponents apply to rational exponents as well; however the operations will be slightly more complicated because of the fractions. Some basic rational exponent rules apply for standard operations. When multiplying exponents, we add them. When dividing exponents, we subtract them. When raising an exponent to an exponent, we multiply them. If the problem has root symbols, we ch
Rational Exponent Rules - Problem 4 of 4
This video is a continuation and provides an example that demonstrates how to simplify a higher degree radical expression by applying the rules for rational exponents. (1:44)
Simplifying Radicals Using Rational Exponents
This video explains how to simplify roots that are either greater than four or have a term raised to a large number by rewriting the problem using rational exponents. Remember that every root can be written as a fraction, with the denominator indicating the root's power. When simplifying radicals, since a power to a power multiplies the exponents, the problem is simplified by multiplying all the exponents together. (1:44)
Simplifying Radicals Using Rational Exponents - Problem 1 of 2
This video is a continuation and provides an example problem that demonstrates how to simplify roots that have a term raised to a large number by using rational exponents to rewrite the problem. (1:23)
Simplifying Radicals Using Rational Exponents - Problem 2 of 2
This video is a continuation and provides another example that demonstrates how to simplify an expression that has multiple roots and powers by using rational exponents. (2:07)

From Tissue Slide To First Molecular Analysis within 24 hours. Fact or Fiction?
By: LUMC_PA_MD For a number of cancersubtypes it is crucial to determine if a mutation is present in genes like KRAS, EGFR, BRAF and PIK3CA. The testresults will be consequently used to predict the response to therapy. We demonstrate the workflow of this process in the Molecular Tumour Diagnostics group in the department of Pathology at the Leiden University Medical Center in the Netherlands.
