    [SOLVED] Reduce to single power..take 2.

    Right… here I go again, (hopefully not another blond moment)! I know I can get this Latex thing sorted so here goes:

    Please could anyone show me how to reduce the following expression?

    \frac{(\sqrt)^6\frac{3}{8}}{\frac{1}{4}}

    Just to let you know, a 'gillyman' has also been asking the same question!

    As you can see you didn't succeed...again. The question is: why do you post it instead of FIRST PREVIEW IT???

    Ok, I see...well, go and grab that paper and burn it to ashes, because that expression makes no sense, of course: there's a square root...with nothing in it! That can't be right, for sure.

    Perhaps you meant \frac{(\sqrt{\frac{3}{8}})^6}{\frac{1}{4}} ?

    Or is it \frac{\sqrt{\frac{3^6}{8}}}{\frac{1}{4}} ?

    Or perhaps \frac{\sqrt[6]{\frac{3}{8}}}{\frac{1}{4}} ...?

    Hard to guess, but the OP said the last time he posted that it was as it appears in his book (or homework)....weird thing.
