In this video the tutor shows how to compare exponential expressions and judge if they are equivalent. He shows how to do this using examples to simply exponential expressions. Now after simplifying the numerator and denominator separately he reduces the fraction to arrive at a simple value. Now using this simple values we can compare them and judge if both their values are equivalent. This video gives a good introduction on how to simplify the exponential expression and how to compare them after simplification to judge if they are equivalent.
