## anonymous 4 years ago Which of the following represents the radical in simplest form? √x^16

1. anonymous

if you'd have $\LARGE \sqrt{x^2}$ how would it be? :)

2. anonymous

huh?

3. anonymous

x^16 = ( x^8 )^2 This might help?

4. anonymous

x^8 x^4 x^7√x The question was which of the following, and I forgot to list the following. So here..

5. anonymous

yes but you need to know this formula: $\Huge \sqrt[a]{x^b}=\left(x\right)^{\frac ba }$ now you have: $\Huge \sqrt[2]{x^{16}}=x^?$ how would it be?? (just follow the formula)

6. anonymous

@qwertyfreak still confused? :)

7. anonymous

uh yeah..

8. anonymous

where are you confused

9. anonymous

everywhere, I dont know how to do this

10. anonymous

$\Huge \sqrt[2]{x^{16}}=\left(x\right)^{\frac{16}{2}}=x^?$
