## How to Find Rational Exponents Calculator?

The general form of a rational exponent is **a ^{p/q}**. Here 'a' is the base and the rational number, p/q is the exponent. The exponent of a number shows how many times the number is multiplied by itself.

Let us see an example to understand briefly.

**Solved Example:**

Find the value of rational exponent is the base value(a) is 25, p = 1, and q = 2

**Solution:**

Given: Base value(a) is 25, p = 1, and q = 2

The general form of a rational exponent is a^{p/q}

= 25^{1 / 2}

= 5

Similarly, you can use the calculator to find the value of rational exponents for:

- Base value(a) is 100, p = 1, and q = 2
- Base value(a) is 48, p = 2, and q = 3
