    radical

    Simplify the following expression: x^3y^(-6/5) 5squareroot(x^-10y^11)?
    the power of the first y is -6/5. The 5 squareroot is the squareroot sign with the little five in front of it. Awesome! Thanks!

    Simplify:

    <br />
x^3 y^{-6/5} \root 5\of{x^{-10}y^{11}}<br />

    Assume x \ge 0 and y \ge 0, then:

    <br />
x^3 y^{-6/5} \root 5\of{x^{-10}y^{11}}=x^3 y^{-6/5}x^{-10/5}y^{11/5}=x^{3-2}y^{-6/5+11/5}=x~y<br />
