Review section 10.2 (p. 692) of your text. Describe two laws of exponents and provide an example illustrating each law. Explain how to simplify your expression. How do the laws work with rational exponents? Provide the class with a third expression to simplify that includes rational (fractional) exponents.

The two laws of exponents are
For any real number a and any rational exponents m and n:
1. In multiplying, we can add exponents if the bases are the same. 2. In dividing, we can subtract exponents if the bases are the same. 3. To raise a power to a power, we can multiply the exponents. 4. To raise a product to a power, we can raise each factor to the power. 5. To raise a quotient to a power, we can raise both the numerator and the denominator to the power.

SIMPLIFYING RADICAL EXPRESSIONS
1. Convert radical expressions to exponential expressions.
2. Use arithmetic and the laws of exponents to simplify.
3. Convert back to radical notation when appropriate.
Important: This procedure works only when all expressions under radicals are nonnegative since rational exponents are not defined otherwise. With this assumption, no absolute-value signs will be needed.

Here are some example of it. EXAMPLES Use the laws of exponents to simplify. 16. 3 1/5 _ 33/5 _ 31/5_3/5 _ 34/5 Adding exponents
17. 71/4 / 71/2 _ 71/4_1/2 _ 71/4_2/4 _ 7_1/4 _1 71/4 Subtracting exponents 18. _7.22/3_3/4 _ 7.22/3 _ 3/4 _ 7.26/12 _ 7.21/2 Multiplying exponents 19. _ a_1/6b1/5 _b1/5a1/6 _a_1/3b2/5_1/2 _ a_1/3 _ 1/2 _ b2/5 _ ½ Raising a product to a power and multiplying exponents The rational exponents can be used to simplify some radical expressions. Example: _3 5 _ _2

MAT 117 /MAT117 Week5 Discussion Question
Version 8
Week5DQ 1
1. What are the two steps for simplifying radicals?
2. Can either step be deleted?
3. If you could add a step that might make it easier or easier to understand, what step would you add?
4. Provide an example for your classmates. (It must be a simplifying radical example)
RESPONSE
When simplifying radicals, there are two steps that you should follow and it is important that you do not skip either step. The steps needed to simplify radicals are to:
1. Determine the largest perfect nth power factor of the radicand
2. Use the product rule to factor out and simplify this perfect nth power.
If I could add a step that might make it easier or easier for me to understand, that step would be to factor the radical expression. This would help me to visualize on paper rather than in my head what the largest perfect nth power factor of the radicand might be. I find that for me, it is easier to solve or simplify something if I have a visual or example in front of me, as I am a hands on learner.
My example for simplifying radicals for the class to solve would be:
√1296
RESPONSE 2
There are two steps for simplifying radicals. The first step is to determine the largest perfect nth power factor of the radicand. For example, 75 has several factors...

What is a frequency distribution?
Frequency distribution is a method to organize and analyze data. It groups the data into categories and consequently displays the results in each category (Sevilla & Sommers 2007 p. 396).
Chosen Category E-Books in the last 30 days
What percentages, shown at the top of the page, were the top five in that category of the total?
Top five books Rank Frequency Percentage of Total
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn- Mark Twain 1 26964 0.70%
The Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana - Vatsyayana 2 25927 0.67%
Pride and Predudice - Jane Austin 3 18109 0.47%
The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle 4 15370 0.40%
How to Analyze People on Sight - Elsie Lincoln Benedict and Ralph Paine Benedict 5 13847 0.36%
If you were to graph the top 100, what would the graph look like?
What information does this tell us if we wanted hard copies of these books to put on a 5-foot shelf in a store? Which books would we choose? What happens if we sell them online instead?
Looking at this data will aid me in determining how to categorize my ordering based on the frequency downloaded. From this I can order allocate my total ordering by the percentages. I would choose the top 10 books. I say this because the online downloads provide key indicators on velocity of these titles. If these were to sell online I think that I would...

Week 9 DQ
If your neighbor asked you to explain what you learned in this course, what would you tell her?
RESPONSE
If my neighbor asked me what I learned in this math course, I would tell her "probably the same thing your kids are learning in school." As our generations progress, so does the advancement of the math that is taught to our kids in school. What I mean is, what may be considered a college level math course today, could easily become something that is taught in middle school in the future. Honestly, this course has a lot of elements that are reminiscent of grade school level math. However, those foundations are brought together to teach a more complex application of higher math, also.
RESPONSE 2
Wow. Where do I begin to answer that? I suppose that I would have to start by asking if my neighbor knows much about algebra. Then I could explain that I learned how to process complex equations and formulas that are used everyday by mathematicians, scientists, or other usages as well. I would also have to say that many of the things that I ave learned to process can be related to everyday life aspects. I like to think of this example when trying to explain algebra and its common usages to people who do not know much of it: if you are throwing a dinner party, you need to know how much...

What are some of the ethical responsibilities and obligations that management accountants have within an organization? Provide some examples. Are these responsibilities different than the obligations for financial accountants?
Guided Response:
Review your peer’s posts. Respond to at least two of your peers outlining the responsibilities that you feel are the most important to management accountants.
Make sure to start looking at colleges fairly early in your high school career. A good time to visit potential schools is during school vacation of your junior year of high school. Then, during the summer before your senior year, you can revisit any schools you liked to get a second look.

Acculturation. The textbook discusses the process of acculturation. After viewing the film, Indian School: Stories of Survival, answer the following questions:
What is the definition of acculturation?
What happened to the Native American children in the film?
Why did the American government decide to acculturate them into Western culture?
How did this affect them long term?
Is acculturating others into another culture ever justified?
Cultural Relativism. Cultural relativism asserts that every culture has its own set of customs and beliefs, and that culture must be understood by the standards and values of the people within that culture. Anthropologists think that things that might seem cruel or irrational in our own culture must be seen through the lens of cultural relativity, and that all cultures have practices or beliefs that can be seen by others as repugnant or incomprehensible.
After reading the U.N. Declaration of Human Rights, explain whether you think that cultural relativism can coexist with the idea of universal human rights. Is it possible...
