How Exponents Affect Fractions - Exponents are one of the most basic components of any beginner level math class. They define the value of a value of a number and are often use for problem solving and simplifying purposes. Exponents affect fractions the same way as they impact a whole number. Exponents can also help represent fractions into whole numbers and vice versa. Exponents themselves can be represented as whole numbers and fractions. Let's try understanding them with the help of examples. First, we look at the whole number exponents. It is important to know that the exponents represent how many times a number will be multiplied with itself. For example, 82 = 8 x 8 = 64. Another example will be 53 = 5 x 5 x 5 = 125. There are also fractional exponents i.e. exponents written in the form of fraction. For example, Square Root √4 or 41/2, Cube Root 3√4 or 41/3and Fourth Root 4√4 or 41/4. These worksheets and lessons can help students become comfortable using fractions that have attached exponents.
