    its an expression, not an equation

    you cannot solve it any further until and unless it is equal to something...

    guessing y^(1/5)=\[\sqrt[5]{y}\]

    I just changed the form of the equation. hint is look at the fraction and that what the sqrt will be powered to

    ok so then it will be the denominator and one the numerator

    y^(1/2)= is just \[\sqrt{y}\] because the sqrt is equal to second power that's why if you ever want to get rid of the sqrt just sq it
