Use rational exponents to write....

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[\sqrt[3]{x} * \sqrt[4]{}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

?????seems incomplete....

OpenStudy (anonymous):

after the star, fourth root of what????

OpenStudy (anonymous):

5x

OpenStudy (anonymous):

ill repost one second

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[\sqrt[3]{x} * \sqrt[4]{5x}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[I got \sqrt[12]{5x ^{7}}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

is this right

OpenStudy (anonymous):

I think it should be as follows

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[\sqrt[3]{x}*\sqrt[4]{5x} = x ^{1/3}*(5x)^{1/4} = x ^{1/3}*5^{1/4}*x ^{1/4}=5^{1/4}*x ^{7/12}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

u hv been asked to use rational exponents....

OpenStudy (anonymous):

well to write it as a single radical expression

OpenStudy (anonymous):

and yet to use rational exponents

OpenStudy (anonymous):

radical form and rational forms are separate/different from each other. what i hv given is the rational exponent form

OpenStudy (anonymous):

also since the rational exponents are not same, we cannot combine them like u hv done

OpenStudy (anonymous):

what does your answer key give as the answer??

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i dont have one

OpenStudy (anonymous):

lol thats the confusing part, my book doesnt even have an example for a problem like this

OpenStudy (anonymous):

but i think the answer u has matches mine mine is just in an rational form
