Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well a cubed root is equal to an exponent of (1/3) and since its squared it will be 27^(2/3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0captaincook maybe great, but I think there is more to be done ;) \[\sqrt[3]{27^2}=(\sqrt[3]{27})^2=(\sqrt[3]{3^3})^2=3^2=9 \]This is what I would call simplifying. Writing it as 27^(2/3) just changes notation...
