Unformatted text preview: Fill in the boxes below with appropriate, simplified numbers: 7 x + 3 x 4 = x + x § Solution We begin by rewriting x 4 as x 1/ 4 , because the template on the right-hand side suggests a preference for exponential form over radical form. 7 x + 3 x 4 = 7 x + 3 x 1/4 We will rewrite this as a sum by splitting it through its numerator. = 7 x 1 x 1/4 + 3 x 1/4 = 7 x 3/4 + 3 x ± 1/4...
