    Hi reiward,

    This is truly some industrial strength algebra. I got the first one down fairly simple, but couldn't manipulate the last term to very much. Maybe it's stated incorrectly or something.


    \sqrt[6]{32 \sqrt{4n^{12}}} - \frac{n\sqrt{4n^2+16n+16}}{n+2}+\frac{n-1}{\sqrt[3]{n}-1}

    \sqrt[6]{32 \cdot 2n^6} - \frac{n\sqrt{(2n+4)^2}}{n+2}+\frac{n-1}{\sqrt[3]{n}-1}

    \sqrt[6]{2^6 \cdot n^6} - \frac{n(2n+4)}{n+2}+\frac{n-1}{\sqrt[3]{n}-1}


    2n - \frac{2n(n+2}{n+2}+\frac{n-1}{\sqrt[3]{n}-1}


    2n - 2n +\frac{n-1}{\sqrt[3]{n}-1}

    \frac{n-1}{\sqrt[3]{n}-1}

    I messed around with this last term a while, but could never get it to anything simpler than it already is.

    Now, for the second one.


    \frac{\sqrt{z^6}\cdot \sqrt[5]{2x^3y^2}}{\sqrt[4]{4x^2y^4z^8}} \div \frac{\sqrt[5]{64x^8y^{-3}}}{\sqrt[6]{8x^3}}

    \frac{z^3 \cdot 2^{\frac{1}{5}}x^{\frac{3}{5}}y^{\frac{2}{5}}}{2^{  \frac{1}{2}}x^{\frac{1}{2}}yz^2}\cdot \frac{2^{\frac{1}{2}}x^{\frac{1}{2}}y^{\frac{3}{5}  }}{2\cdot 2^{\frac{1}{5}}x\cdot x^{\frac{3}{5}}}=\frac{zy}{2xy}=\frac{z}{2x}

    hi, we discussed the answers already, just wanna share. for the last term this is what we did.

    \frac{n-1}{\sqrt[3]{n}-1} * \frac{\sqrt[3]{n}^2 + \sqrt[3]{n} + 1}{\sqrt[3]{n}^2 + \sqrt[3]{n} + 1}

    then

    \frac{n-1} {n-1} \sqrt[3]{n}^2 + \sqrt[3]{n} + 1<br />

    so the answer is.

     \sqrt[3]{n}^2 + \sqrt[3]{n} + 1<br />
