Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the problem is this? \[\LARGE \left(\sqrt[3]{c^7d^4}\right)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and they want you to simplify? or rewrite into rational exponent form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok are you familiar with converting radical form to rational exponent form?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I'm going to use this rule \[\LARGE \sqrt[n]{x^m} = x^{m/n}\] hopefully it looks familiar

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok... walk me through how to solve this

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we use that rule to go from \[\LARGE \sqrt[3]{c^7d^4}\] to \[\LARGE \left(c^7d^4\right)^{1/3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which is why \[\LARGE \left(\sqrt[3]{c^7d^4}\right)^2\] is the same as \[\LARGE \left(\left(c^7d^4\right)^{1/3}\right)^2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then we multiply the exponents \[\LARGE \left(\left(c^7d^4\right)^{1/3}\right)^2\] \[\LARGE \left(c^7d^4\right)^{1/3*2}\] \[\LARGE \left(c^7d^4\right)^{2/3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so do you see how I got \[\LARGE \left(c^7d^4\right)^{2/3}\]

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we multiply the inner exponents by the outer exponent 2/3 \[\LARGE \left(c^7d^4\right)^{2/3}\] \[\LARGE c^{7*2/3}d^{4*2/3}\] \[\LARGE c^{14/3}d^{8/3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1when you divide 14/3, what is the quotient and remainder?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it would be 14 is youre remainder and 3 is youre quotient

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.114/3 = 4 remainder 3 4 is the quotient, 3 is the remainder

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that leads us to \[\LARGE c^{14/3} = c^4\sqrt[3]{c^2}\]

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1similarly, \[\LARGE d^{8/3} = d^2\sqrt[3]{d^2}\]

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so overall \[\LARGE c^{14/3}d^{8/3} = c^4\sqrt[3]{c^2}*d^2\sqrt[3]{d^2}\] \[\LARGE c^{14/3}d^{8/3} = c^4d^2\sqrt[3]{c^2d^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sorry I meant to say "14/3 = 4 remainder 2" (not remainder 3)
