    Is your question \(\sqrt{x}\times4\sqrt{x}\)?

    \[\sqrt{x} \times \sqrt[4]{x}\]

    This is the new question: Rewrite in simplest radical form: \[x^{5/6}\] divided by \[x^{1/6}\] Show each step of your process

    Alright. Do you remember what you do to the exponents when you divide with the same base?

    so it would be exponent 2/3 and then move the 3 outside the square root and the 2 inside?

    So, you should get \(\sqrt[3]{x^2}\) to make sure you're thinking what I'm thinking.

    And yeah, if you want a quick way to remember those exponent rules, just do a small calculation to make sure. The reason \(\frac{2^3}{2^2}=2^1\), for example, is because exponents are just multiplication. So, \frac{2\times2\times2}{2\times2}, and you can cancel two of those 2's, and you're left with one 2.

    Sorry about the formatting, \[\frac{2\times2\times2}{2\times2}\]but I think you get the gist of it. And yeah, it's cool meeting someone else from FM. Gtg, see ya. :)
