Power of Fractions

Grade 6 Math Worksheets

All of these are used in our day-to-day life. We use these problems to calculate certain things, like the distance of Mars from the planet Earth, calculated in light-years.

An exponent is a number that is raised to a base. But what do we mean by an Exponent?

"My daughter gets distracted easily"

"My daughter gets distracted very easily and Ms. Medini and other teachers were patient with her and redirected her back to the courses.

With the help of Etutorworld, my daughter has been now selected in the Gifted and Talented Program   for the school district"

- Nivea Sharma (via TrustSpot.io)

Let us just refresh our memory on the rules of exponents and importantly focus on the ‘Fraction rule’ before we go further.

What are the Rules for Exponents?

rules of exponents

An Exponent is a short version of expressing how many times a number is supposed to be multiplied by itself.

There have been times when we booked them last minute, but the teachers have been extremely well-prepared and the help desk at etutorworld is very prompt.

Our kid is doing much better with a higher score.

Solving Fractions with Exponents

Just like integers with exponent powers, we solve fractions with exponent powers.

Now, Let’s take a look at this example:

\left ( \frac{2}{{3}} \right )^3 = \frac{2}{3} x \frac{2}{3} x \frac{2}{3} = \frac{8}{27}

How to solve this one?

The numerators get multiplied by itself and the denominators get multiplied by itself.

\left ( \frac{4}{{7}} \right )^2 = \frac{4\ast4}{7\ast7} = \frac{16}{49}


  • \left ( \frac{1}{{3}} \right )^3 = \frac{1}{3} x \frac{1}{3} x \frac{1}{3}
  • \left ( \frac{2}{{5}} \right )^4 = \frac{2}{5} x \frac{2}{5} x \frac{2}{5} x \frac{2}{5} = \frac{16}{625}

Solving Fraction Exponents

\frac{1}{2}  as an exponent means square root.

\frac{1}{3} as an exponent means cube root.

\frac{1}{4} as an exponent means fourth root and so on.


(9)^{\frac{1}{2}}  =  \sqr{9}  = 3

(343)^{\frac{1}{3}}  =  \sqrt[3]{343}  = 7

(16)^{\frac{1}{4}}  =  \sqrt[4]{16}  = 2

(8)^{\frac{4}{3}} \left ( 2 ^{3} \right )^{\frac{4}{3}} = 2^4 = 16
