    multiplying with powers and sqrt

    How would you combine this?

    x^(3/2) * sqrt(x+1) = ?

    Thanks,

    Re: multiplying with powers and sqrt

    sqrt(x+1) is the same as (x+1)^(1/2), can you now continue?

    Re: multiplying with powers and sqrt

    is it....

    x^(3/2)(x+1)^(1/2) --> (x^2+x)^2 --> (x^4+x^2)
