 Question 68822: Please help me simplify for this equation: . The 3 is small outside to the left of square root of 8a^12 Found 2 solutions by rmromero, ankor@dixie-net.com:Answer by rmromero(383)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!. Since it involves cube root, we are going to find prime factors of 8 and a^12 8 = 2*2*2 = 2^3 a^12 = a*a*a*a*a*a*a*a*a*a*a*a = a^3*a^3*a^3*a^3 = (a^3)^4 Therefore the cube root of 8a^12 is 2a^4 Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(16527)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!I think you mean: : CubeRt(8*a^12) : Think of this as factored to : CubeRt[2*2*2*a^4*a^4*a^4] : Extracting the cube root gives you: : 2*a^4 : Did this help you understand this?
