    it is a summation the is set up (An)^n\[\sum_{?}^{?}(A _{n})^n\], it's a series that is made to a power

    \[\sum_{n=1}^{\infty} \sqrt[3]{(6n^5-6n^3+7n)} / (6n^5+2n^4-4)\]

    no problem, is that the 3rd root over the numerator?

    yes sorry it was hard to make it look like it was only over the numerator ha

    so they want you to resolve this thing down to some ort of series all taken up to the same power then?

    heres an example.... 1/n and p=1

    and if it was \[7/\sqrt{n}\] p=1/2

    I could see\[\sum_{?}^{?}(1/(6n^5+2n^4-4))*(6n^5-6n^3+7n)^(1/3)\] that is to the (1/3) toward the end there. In that case the power it is taken to is (1/3). I just don't see anyway of reducing the n's down so it is more clear. I guess if I were answering it, I would say (1/3) is the only determinable power. It's not as if the numerator and denominater have like bases to see it being anything else. Neither one of them are factorable from wht I can see.

    unless in some sick way they are expection 1-1/3 = 2/3, but I really can't see that, because like I said the bases would have to be the same.

    I ws thinking you had something vageuly reducible that could be taken up to a single power. I've had stuff like that thrown at me, but jsut to say what the power is alone, is different. Sorry I could not be more help.
