    Please learn some basic latex so that people don't have to waste time deciphering what is posted: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...-tutorial.html

    I assume the expression is \sqrt{x^4 y^5} \times \sqrt[3]{x^2 y^5} \times \sqrt[5]{x^5}.


    The latex code for this is [tex]\sqrt{x^4 y^5} \times \sqrt[3]{x^2 y^5} \times \sqrt[5]{x^5}[/tex]

    Now, assuming that the formula is what mr. fantastic said, what is your question?

    simplify first

    (\sqrt{x^4y^5})(\sqrt[3]{x^2y^5})(x)

    then change everything to a common power

    \sqrt[6]{(x^4y^5)^3(x^2y^5)^2(x)^6}

    can you finish up?
