Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The net is so bad here. So that I try to give you the whole thing first, in case I lost the net again. If you can understand it by yourself, it 's pretty good. If you don't, I explain now.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12) To take a number out of the root, we need the number has the exponent = the root. In this case, it is 4, so that I tried to get a number ^ 4, that is \(2^4\) because \(2^4*5 =80\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Only 2 can get out of the 4th root, since its exponent is 4 while 5 cannot. Hence 2 goes out of the root and 5 must stay inside ( they have to say "goodbye" to each other. dw:1432774780928:dw
