How would I enter √8x^5 to output 2x^2√2x or another problem is (index 3)√81x^10 to output 3x^3 (index 3)√3x ? Thanks for the help.
The calculator is clearly solving but it is displaying one of two possible outputs for radicals. You said so yourself that you're not sure whether both can be displayed using certain methods or not. Now, the question becomes is there a way to get √8x^5 to output as 2x^2√2x on a Ti-89 calculator?
