# Math Help - Exam tomorrow

1. ## Exam tomorrow

Solve the equation. Show me step by step please

5*x^1/3=35

2. ## rambo: here's your solution, step by step

you want to solve for x, so we have to start to leave x alone on one side.

since the 5 is multiplying the x^(1/3), you want to divide both sides by x.
now we're left with:
x^(1/3)=7

now to get rid of the "1/3", you would take the "x^(1/3)" and raise it to the power of 3, and of course, you want to do that to both sides, so now we get:
(x^1/3)^3=7^3
the 1/3 and the 3 cancel each other out so now we have:
x=7^3
and just solve 7^3 so:
x=343.
