# Math Help - Solving Equation

1. ## Solving Equation

The Question: $5x^{7/6}-5=0$

I can get to this part: $x^{7/6}=11$ but I don't know what to do next

Thanks for the help!

2. what you have is equal to ... $\sqrt[6]{x^{7}} = 11$

hope that this is little easier

3. Thanks but how can I get the x to be alone

4. If $x^t = s$, then $x = x^{t \cdot \frac{1}{t}} = s^{ \frac{1}{t}}$

Do you follow?

5. Sorry still dont follow...

Edit: Oh I got it...thank you

6. ok you can see
$\sqrt[6]{x^{7}} = 11$
from that...
$\sqrt[6]{x^{7}}$
is greater than 0
so

$x^{7}= 11^{6}$
or

$x = \sqrt[7]{ 11^6 }$
