## anonymous one year ago expression equal to exponent 3 and root of 250

1. anonymous

Are you supposed to be simplifying $$\sqrt[3]{250}$$ ?

2. anonymous

I have to find an expression equal to it

3. anonymous

ok. do you how to find the prime factorization of 250?

4. anonymous

yes

5. anonymous

what did you get? that's all you really need to know to solve these

6. anonymous

$\sqrt[3]{250}=\sqrt[3]{2 \times 5 \times 5 \times 5}=\sqrt[3]{2 \times 5^3}=5\sqrt[3]{2}$
