# Solving Equations With Rational Exponents

This math video tutorial gives a step by step explanation to a math problem on "Solving Equations With Rational Exponents".

# Equations

An equation is a mathematical statement, in symbols, that two things are the same (or equivalent). Equations are written with an equal sign. Equations are often used to state the equality of two expressions containing one or more variables.

# Exponents

Exponentiation is a mathematical operation, written an, involving two numbers, the base a and the exponent n. When n is a positive integer, exponentiation corresponds to repeated multiplication:

a1 = a
a2 = a × a
a3 = a × a × a
a4 = a × a × a × a

and so on.

# Rational Numbers

A rational number is a number which can be expressed as a ratio of two integers. Non-integer rational numbers (commonly called fractions) are usually written as the vulgar fraction a / b , where b is not zero. a is called the numerator, and b the denominator.

# Solving Equations

Solving an equation means finding a value for the variable that makes the equation true.
