Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If I'm reading you right, then your equation would look like y^(3/2)*y^(2/3). With same bases, you would add your exponents, so 3/2+2/3=13/6. Your answer is y^13/6, which you can simplify.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember that roots are just the base raised to 1 over whatever you are rooting to. For example, the square root of y is the same as y^(1/2), and the cube root is y^(1/3). Prove this to yourself on a calculator with y as any number. If your base already has an exponent, that exponent becomes the numerator. So square root of y^3 is y^(3/2) and cube root of y^2 is y^(2/3).
