Today your child learns to raise fractions to a power. How do you square a fraction? You square the top of the fraction (numerator) and then you also square the bottom of the fraction (denominator). This is really very easy and in a way is additional practice of the concepts learned over the last few lessons about powers.

1. $x^2/y^2$
2. $4x^2/9y^2$
3. $8x^3/27y^3$
4. $-8x^3/27y^3$
