    Note Think it's a fraction or a division but they are suppose to be on top of eachother like a fraction.

    square root goes to 1/2 cube root goes to 1/3 so its 5 ^ 1/3

    right so our answer is 5^ 1/6 or if you want it as a radical its |dw:1433183702327:dw|

    with fraction exponents the top of fraction is the power and bottom is the root |dw:1433183789032:dw|
