Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\frac{5^{1/3} 5^{1/2}}{5^{5/3}} = \frac{5^{1/3 + 1/2}}{5^{5/3}} = 5^{(1/3)+(1/2) (5/3)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2as dumbcow pointed out, \(\large { a^{\frac{{\color{blue} n}}{{\color{red} m}}} \implies \sqrt[{\color{red} m}]{a^{\color{blue} n}} \qquad \qquad \sqrt[{\color{red} m}]{a^{\color{blue} n}}\implies a^{\frac{{\color{blue} n}}{{\color{red} m}}} }\)
