# Fix b > 1. If m, n, . (DUE IN 1 HOUR!)

Fix b > 1. If m, n, ......... (DUE IN 1 HOUR!)

## Homework Statement

Fix b > 1.

If m, n, p, q are integers, n > 0, q > 0, and r = m/n = p/q, prove that
(bm)1/n = (bp)1/q

## Homework Equations

For every real x > 0 and every integer n > 0 there is one and only one positive real y such that yn = x.

## The Attempt at a Solution

This is what I have so far.

I could use a helpful hint or two to put the final nail in this coffin.
