@rvc it should be $\LARGE \sqrt[n]{x} \cdot \sqrt[n]{x} = \sqrt[n]{x*x}= \sqrt[n]{x^2}$ you might be thinking of $\LARGE \left(\sqrt[n]{x}\right)^n = x$

okay, so what do I do?

5. rvc

as jim said :) $\Large \sqrt[7]{x} \cdot \sqrt[7]{x} = ?$

6. anonymous

$\sqrt[7]{x^4}$ for my problem, right?

7. jim_thompson5910

correct @RosieF

8. anonymous

so what next?

9. jim_thompson5910

you can't simplify any further because the 4 is smaller than 7

10. jim_thompson5910

$\LARGE \sqrt[n]{x^m}$ Can simplify if m $$\ge$$ n Cannot simplify if m < n

okay, thank you :)
