The question goes a little something like this, and sorry if it`s confusing:

(Square root of x^3)times (index of 5, square root of x^6)

all divided by (index of 15, square root of x^3)

Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks a million!

is this what you mean?

$\displaystyle \frac{\sqrt{x^3} \cdot \sqrt[5]{x^6}}{\sqrt[15]{x^3}}$ - Sep 22nd 2008, 05:59 PMcjh824
Yep! That's exactly what I mean!

Think of it like this

$\displaystyle \frac{(x^{\frac{3}{2}})(x^{\frac{6}{5}})}{x^{\frac {3}{15}}}$

add the exponents in the numerator since it to the same base

$\displaystyle \frac{x^{\frac{27}{10}}}{x^{\frac{3}{15}}}$

then bring the power in the denominator to the top

and you end up with

$\displaystyle x^{\frac{15}{6}}$ - Sep 22nd 2008, 06:36 PMShyam
