Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sqrt{27u^3v ^{10}w^6}\] Here you can take advantage of a property of radicals: \[\sqrt{u.v}=\sqrt{u}\sqrt{v}\] Si, here, we can take the square root of each factor: \[\sqrt{27u^3v ^{10}w^6}=\sqrt{27}\sqrt{u^3}\sqrt{v ^{10}}\sqrt{w^6}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know you cant give the answer. but would you be willing to help me? I dont know where to go after (27u^v^10w^6)^1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you want to take the method if expressing the main radical as a fractionary exponent, you can take advantage of a exponential property: \[(27u^3v ^{10}w^6)^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }}\] \[(a^n)^m=a ^{mn}\] This expands to each factor, so: \[(27^{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }})(u ^{3\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }})(v ^{10\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }})(w ^{6\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }})\]
