First, the a part can be simplified easily.

4. anonymous

ya just a

5. Oaktree

a^6 into 6 parts is just a, but you need it to be absolute value because you're an odd exponent.

6. Oaktree

Next, the 8.

7. Oaktree

8=2^3...so you have 2^(3/6) = 2^1/2 = the square root of 2.

8. Oaktree

So, your answer is $\left| a \right|\sqrt{2}$

9. Oaktree

Got it?
