Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It was actually supposed to be something like: 6^(3/2)w^(3/2) * 2sqrt3w. Any idea how'd they get that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I just gave you a hint. The "right" answer was obtained by decomposing everything into prime powers, like this:\[\sqrt{6w^3}\sqrt{12w}=\sqrt{6w^3}\sqrt{2^2\cdot3w}=\sqrt{6w^3}2\sqrt{3w}.\]I have no clue how you obtained \((6w)^{3/2}\) for the first term.
