## anonymous 5 years ago use rational exponents to simplify 4sqrtx^20 My answer is x^5 is that right?

1. anonymous

Im trying to put the equation like it is on my paper but I can't

2. anonymous

$\sqrt[4]{x ^{20}}$

3. anonymous

$=x ^{20/4}$

4. anonymous

$=x ^{5}$

5. anonymous

no

6. anonymous

the problem 4$\sqrt{x^{20}}$

7. anonymous

with the 4 on the outside

8. anonymous

on the left side, sry

9. anonymous

so yes it will be like this $\sqrt[4]{x ^{20}}$

10. anonymous

yes like that, so will the answer still be x^5

11. anonymous

yes $\sqrt[4]{x ^{20}} = x^{20/4} = x^{5}$

oh ok, thank you :)
