    \[\frac{x^2}{3} - \frac{25}{49} = 0\] \[\frac{x^2}{3} = \frac{25}{49} = \frac{5^2}{7^2} = (\frac{5}{7})^2\] Can you solve that for x? Remember, there will be a negative and a positive root.

    im sorry i wrote it wrong the x^2/3 should be x^(2/3)

    \[x^{2/3} - \frac{25}{49} = 0\] is the real problem?

    That isn't too hard. Move the fraction to the right hand side, and then undo that gnarly exponent. Remember, \(x^{\frac{2}{3}} = \sqrt[3]{x^2}\).

    so now i have x^2= (25/49)^3

    Yes. Take the square root of the right hand fraction before cubing it, that will be easier!
