Ok, watch the exponents in this problem, thanks!
How does (1+x)•2(√1+x)^½ = 2(√1+x)^3/2
when you multiply the following exponents (2)(-1/3) you get (-2/3).
Both are multiplying rational exponents, but two are doing it very differently. One has to be wrong, but which?
I understand that, but in a problem like (8x^3/4y^2)^ -1/3, where I'm ask to simplify, when I multiply the two exponents (2)(-1/3) I get 6/3 on on the answer sheet it says it's 2/3. http://www.wtamu.edu/academic/anns/m...ut5_ratexp.htm (example 5)
