Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this supposed to be: 2 ^ (3sqrt108) ? Two raised to the (3 times square root of 108) power?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No, its just the number 2 being multiplied by the sqrt of 108 that has ^3 in front of the sqrt sign... I learned in my lesson that it means 108^1/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Oh okay \(\large 2(\sqrt[3]{108})\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So try and think about cubed roots \(\large 2^3 = 8\) <can this be evenly divided into 108? \(\large 3^3 = 27\) <what about this? \(\large 4^3 = 64\) < or this? We know 64 cannot be evenly divided into 108..so ignore that...but in what way ...can we manipulate the numbers 3 and 2 to break down 108? *Remembering the key is cubed root*

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmmm... I'm thrown off by the 3 and 2 you gave me to work with.. Not really sure what I'm supposed to do :/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well the reason why I'm giving you that is because if you think about it \[\large \sqrt[3]{x^3} = x\] right? the 3 and the 3 cancel leaving just 'x'...so if we can find something that is raised to the third power....this can be simplified greatly So hint* (kinda a big one lol) \(\large 3^3 * 4\) what does that equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You may be reading too much into this because the goal is not to cancel out that exponent.. It still remains in the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Exactly :P So if we take your original question \[\large 2(\sqrt[3]{108})\] and write it as \(\large 2\sqrt[3]{(3^3 * 4)}\) that is the same ***and the exponent will still be in the answer btw :P *** just a way of breaking it down

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay SO remember how i said \[\large \sqrt[3]{x^3} = x\] Well...lookey what we have here... \[\large 2(\sqrt[\color \red{3}]{\color \red{3^3} * 4})\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So now if we rewrite this as \[\large 2(3\sqrt[3]{4})\] I believe you can do the rest ;P
