for solving this , 96=2^5*3 and hence simplifying u get answer as, \[3\times3 ^{1/5}\]

why 3 times 3^1/5? why not 3 + 3^1/5 as in the original?

simplifying the first expression we hav, \[(2*2*2*2*2*3)^{1/5} + 3^{1/5}\] now from the first bracket,u take ou 2 and hence u get \[2\times3^{1/5}+3^{1/5}= 3^{1/5}(2+1)=3\times3^{1/5}\]
