Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know that the correct answer is 3.. I got 9.. I can show my work if you want

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.33^4=81 as my hint

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Realize that (1/81)^1/4=(81)^1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Them you are good I just told you 81=3^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So why do you get 9

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If your saying 3^4 is the answer that is incorrect

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No iIdidn't say it is the answer just one step before the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Why did I make it 3^4 if you think about it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(1/81)^1/4 = 1/(1/81)^1/4 = 1/^4square root 1/81 > square root 1/81 = 1/9 1/square root 1/81 = 1/ (1/9) = 1*9/1=9 Where did I go wrong? I followed the example

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3The answer is 3 like you said I'm just giving the why it is the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Lol incorrect footsteps that's why it is wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How? I followed the example that I was given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Didn't I jut wrote (1/81)^1/4=(81)^1/4 So we have (3^4)^1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I thought you understood that step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I understand changing 1/4 to 1/4... I did that in the first step.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now you have something like (a^n) ^m Which is a^(nxm) rule

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You did but you didn't flip the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What?? Can you show me your work? I dont understand what your saying.. I dont know what this is "Now you have something like (a^n) ^m Which is a^(nxm) rule "

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3But then you did that in the end however 9 is incorrect since 81=9^2 You used the wrong exponent to simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3You should have used 3^4 not 9^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's exponent rule my dear

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay... What I did like the example was square root 81 = 9.. So Im suppose to ignore square root and do 3*3*3*3= 3^4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Even if you used 9^2 You still end up with (9^2)^1/4=9^1/2=3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It is ni5 square root it 4th root

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um sure... I figured out what you were saying above but honestly your just confusing me.. Thanks for the help I think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Sorry I couldn't help more since I'm in the phone otherwise I would try to before precise

Destinyyyy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes Im not suppose to do square root just the fourth power like my other problems.. The example should have shown that.
