I'm guessing I should change the RHS to (1/2)^(1/6.) Am I right?

Hello to you as well, sasogeek

First, I'm not clear on your notation. Is it \(8^{x} = \dfrac{1}{6}\sqrt{2}\) or maybe \(8^{x} = \sqrt[6]{2}\) or something else?

Sorry. I don't know how to type expressions like this into the field.

Anyway..I imagine I'm supposed to end up with 2^3^x = (1/2)^(1/6)

And then 2^3x = 2^(1/6)

No worries. Learning just a little LaTeX can go a long way. You just have to find other ways to communicate without it. Click the [Equation] button, below, and do some experimenting.

Alright, will do :). So...is the answer just (1/6)/2?

Excellent! 2^(3x) is the real key to this problem's simplest solution. Same bases! If they are to be equal, the exponents must be equal. 3x = 1/6 if we started with \(\dfrac{1}{\sqrt[6]{2}}\) or 3x = 1/6 if we started with \(\sqrt[6]{2}\) or

Oh...of course. So it's (1/6)/3, or 1/18

Well, actually I got it wrong and then tkhunny guided me towards the correct answer, but I'm glad you think so!
