Rearranging Equations

I have two equations from my physics textbook that I use to solve problems. Now some problems that I face require me to use algebra to manipulate the equation. This is where i have the problem. I've taking algebra before, but i'm having a hard time with this. On the attachment, please show me step by step on how to solve

Advantage of rational exponents over the radical sign.

Q # 1. While the radical symbol is widely used, converting to rational exponents has advantages. Explain an advantage of rational exponents over the radical sign. Include in your answer an example of an equation easier to solve as a rational exponent rather then a radical sign. See attached for Q # 2: Using the quadratic
