Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, it's important to recognize that 32 and \(a^{10}\) are 5th powers. So, taking fifth roots, we get \((2a^{2})^{3}\). Are you good from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok and you get a^2 by dividing 10 by 5 right?...so what happened to the denominator of five outside the ()?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That goes away because we divided the powers by 5.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{1}{7^{2}}\], right?, which then becomes? (leave it in a fraction)
