how do you simplify the 3rd square root of 27squared?
does it look like this \[\sqrt[3]{27^{2}}\]
well a cubed root is equal to an exponent of (1/3) and since its squared it will be 27^(2/3)

thank you!! your great!|dw:1354817096618:dw|
captaincook 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...
thank you for the concern. i misspoke, i actually needed to change the notation not simplify the equation.
