Which of the following is equivalent to ?

When dealing with fractional exponents, keep the following in mind: The numerator is making the base bigger, so treat it like a regular exponent. The denominator is making the base smaller, so it must be the root you are taking.

This means that is equal to the fifth root of b to the fourth. Perhaps a bit confusing, but it means that we will keep , but put the whole thing under.

So if we put it together we get:
