Quan has a good explanation.

Here's two ways you can write the answer:

1 /(

^{7}√(t^{2}))OR

1 / (

^{7}√t)^{2}Hi,

t

^{-(2/7)}When you see a negative exponent that mean it is 1/t

^{(2/7) }Next step, with the fraction exponent, the numerator is the power and the denominator is the root.

For example t

^{(3/4)}means that 4th-root(t^{3})Hope it helps.
