    9x(2+x^5)^(1/3)= [blank](2+x^5)^(1/3)(2x)


    any help solving these is appreciated

    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?

    \frac{9}{2} is the missing factor!
