I don't know what to do for this one... the exponent outside the radical confuses me: It says to simplify the expression. I know that I have to factor the numbers, but that exponent "3" is confusing. Help?

The only difference is now you have to find a CUBIC factor, rather than a square factor... Note that So . Also, note that . So . Therefore .

Also, note that . So . Therefore . Oh, I see now. I forgot that I could take the equation apart, that makes it much easier Just wondering, where did the 9 come from? (in the last step) edit: Never mind, I see where it came from... Thanks for helping me!
