    you can convert radical to an exponent form \[\huge\rm \sqrt[\color{Red}{n}]{x^\color{blue}{m}}=x^\frac{\color{blue}{ m }}{ \color{ReD}{n} }\]index becomes denominator of fraction

    alright let's solve ur question\[\huge\rm (\color{Red}{\sqrt[4]{a^5 b^3}})^2\] first solve the red part we can convert radical to an exponent \[\huge\rm ( (a^5 b^3)^\frac{ 1 }{ 4 })^2\] both variable a and b are re raising to the 1/4 power now apply the exponent rule multiply the exponents \[\huge\rm (x^n)^m = x^{m \times n}\]

    according to the exponent rule you can multiply 1/4 by 2\[\huge\rm (\color{blue}{(a^5b^3)}^\frac{ 1 }{ 4})^\color{ReD}{2} = \color{blue}{(a^5b^3)}^{(\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } \times 2)}\]
