whether I can allow the exponent to go inside of the absolute value.

Are you asking whether ##|n r^n|^{1/n} = | (n r^n)^{1/n}| ## ?

Try ##r = 1,\ n = -2##.

So it's not generally true then? What if ##n## is positive?Are you asking whether ##|n r^n|^{1/n} = | (n r^n)^{1/n}| ## ?

Try ##r = 1,\ n = -2##.

If n and r are both positive then absolute value can be ignored.

Well ##n## is positive while ##r## is not necessarily positive.If n and r are both positive then absolute value can be ignored.
