\[\frac{ 3 }{ \sqrt[3]{2} }\]

- DF001

For one of the rule, the denominator can not be radical but, how can I get rid of that?

- DF001

I have to simplify this problem

may i ask if the denominator is (2)^1/9

- anonymous

ups my bad, its 2/3

- DF001

i can see it now, it's the ^n(radA^m) property

in converting (2)^2/3, what is used is one of the exponential properties, am I correct?

Ignore the other pictures from before, made a mistake on these.

I get the part up to the latest picture u sent me but, the answer I got from mathway is weird

you do the same process again with the cube root of 4

- DF001

Im confused with the process now. i usually multiple the denominator to the numerator but, this question is the very first that i've ever done :/

- anonymous

|dw:1442815066254:dw|

- DF001

no matter how i multiple the denominator by itself, it's still a radical :(

- anonymous

you teacher wants you to get rid of the root being on the denominator. The way to cancel it is by multiplying it by itself again such as this.|dw:1442815238734:dw|

- DF001

yes, I did it that way but, the denominator came out to be ^3rad

- anonymous

Well we now have the cube root of 4, we have to do the same process once again until be can simplify it off and not have a root on the denominator.

How can I simplify it by 2

- DF001

I can see that rad8 would be 2rad2 if there isn't a 3 as the index

- anonymous

ow just noticed I went on a circle.. my bad lol

- anonymous

|dw:1442815657071:dw|

- anonymous

Forgot to do that on the denominator otherwise you go back to the 3/(2)^(1/3)

- DF001

I think I get it alot better now

- DF001

I can see that rad4 is simplified to 2x2

- anonymous

|dw:1442815852580:dw|

- DF001

could I ask why the denominator turned to 2 when its 2x2x2

- DF001

|dw:1442815914490:dw|

- DF001

im only confused on that part

- DF001

i was wondering what happened to the index 3

when you square root something, for example 4 then it is equals to 2 because 2*2 = 4 right?

- DF001

oh I see now, 2^3=8 thus, the denom is 2

- anonymous

In this case is cube too meaning you need the same number 3 times and multiply it to get the answer. In this case 8 would be 2*2*2 = 8

- DF001

I understand now, thank you very much :)

- anonymous

Cube root*

- anonymous

Sure, no problem :)
