3-59.

Use your exponent patterns to rewrite each of the expressions below. For example, if the original expression has a negative exponent, then rewrite the expression so that it has no negative exponents, and vice versa. Also, if you can simplify the expression, go ahead and do so. Note: In part (b), assume that
