Hi I have just done my first day doing A levels. My teacher has given me homework to do with simplifying and evaluating expressions. I don't understand the method on how to solve the equation.
An example of one of the simplifying questions is: 5x^(1+2/5) / x^(2/5)
An example of one of the evaluation questions is: 27/8^(2/3)
My apologies for not using the LaTeX software but I tried for about half an hour to input the equation correctly but only got errors.
Thanks for the first one that has worked great.
As for the second one I have realised I made a mistake. I didnt mean for it to look like 27 divided by 8 ^ 2/3.
I meant for it to look like
Still learning on how to work the software.
Okay, I understand the working behind what you have both said. What is confusing me however is in the notes I took from what my teacher did in class included square and cube roots e.g an example she gave us:
Sorry if this is something obvious that I am not getting, just its all very confusing for me at the moment
