# Math Help - simplifying radicals?

I'm confused on how to solve these... what do I do with the exponent? If someone could explain, that'd be great
1. $\sqrt[4]{2x}$

2. $\sqrt[4]{243(x+1)}$

This is in its simpliest form

So is this.

When talking about exponents $\sqrt[4]{x} = x^{\frac{1}{4}}$

3. Oh okay, I must of got confused with something else.

Thanks
