First, the a part can be simplified easily.

4. anonymous

ya just a

5. anonymous

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

6. anonymous

Next, the 8.

7. anonymous

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

8. anonymous

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

9. anonymous

Got it?

Ya! thanks, it didnt need the absolute value but, worked so thnx
