# Math Help - Missing factors

1. ## Missing factors

I'm having trouble with missing factors, here's an example:
9x(2+x^5)^(1/3)= [blank](2+x^5)^(1/3)(2x)

any help solving these is appreciated

2. Well, you've got $(2+x^5)^{1/3}$on both sides of the= sign. So you can forget about thaose for a minute and divide them out.

Then what do ya got left?

9x=(?)2x

In other words, what do you have to multiply 2 by to get nine?

3. $\frac{9}{2}$ is the missing factor!
