    \[\LARGE \sqrt[4]{16M^8}\] Is that what you're looking at?

    It might be easier if you think of it like: \(\LARGE \sqrt[4]{16 \times M^8}\) or \(\LARGE \sqrt[4]{16} \times \sqrt[4]{M^8}\)

    It can't be solved. There's no equal sign, so you can't say that M "equals" anything. All you can do is reduce it. For example, what is the fourth root of 16?

    \[16=2^4\] \[M^8=(M^2)^4\]
