To evaluate fractional exponents, you can use the property that a fractional exponent represents a root. For example, to evaluate ( x^{\frac{1}{2}} ), you would find the square root of ( x ). Similarly, to evaluate ( x^{\frac{1}{3}} ), you would find the cube root of ( x ), and so on.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
