The phrase “closed under addition” is often mentioned when studying the properties and characteristics of different types of numbers. The closure property of addition highlights a special characteristic in rational numbers (among other groups of numbers). Knowing which set of numbers are closed under addition will also help in predicting the nature of complex quantities’ […]

Consider a number “$x$”; if it is represented in the form $x^{dfrac{p}{q}}$, then we will say it is a rational exponent. Here, “$x$” is the base while $dfrac{p}{q}$ is the exponent, which we can apply rational exponents’ properties or expressions. Exponents are represented in the radical form and we can apply the properties of rational […]
