|dw:1434674084996:dw| check and solve

3. BTaylor

$$\frac{r}{6} = 5^{2/3}$$ ??

4. BTaylor

Is that the correct problem?

5. anonymous

yes

6. BTaylor

to solve for r, just multiply both sides by 6.

7. anonymous

Can you explain

8. BTaylor

You multiply by 6 so you have $$r \times 6/6$$, which is just one. Then, since you did it to one side of the equation, you have to do it to the other side as well.

9. anonymous

So basically r x 1= 1and then i would do 6x5

10. BTaylor

yes. But remember the $$6 \times 5^{2/3}$$

11. anonymous

6x5 would be 30

12. BTaylor

is it 5 to the 2/3 power? or 5 and 2/3?
