Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If (y+1)^(2/3)=9 then (y+1) = 9^(3/2) Now what is 9^(3/2) equal to?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, what is the value of that expression. Hint: \( 9^{3/2} = (9^{1/2})^3 = ... \)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not sure... \[729^{1/2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but it's easier to write it the way I have because the square root of 9 is 3. Hence \[ 9^{3/2} = (9^{1/2})^3 = 3^3 = 27 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ \frac{3}{2} = 3 \times \frac{1}{2} \] hence \[ 9^{3/2} = (9^{1/2})^3 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ 9^{3/2} = 9^{3 \times 1/2} = 9^{ 1/2 \times 3} = (9^{1/2})^3 = 3^3 = 27\] Now \( (y+1)^{2/3} = 9 \) is equivalent to \[ [(y+1)^{2/3}]^{3/2} = 9^{3/2} \] i.e., \[ (y+1)^1 = 27 \] i.e., \[ y + 1 = 27 \] Thus \( y = ... \)
