 Question 563892: using rational exponents to write a 2 index radical 7 multiplied by 3 index radical 6 do you multiply the radicals to get 42 and the indexes, do you add or multiply them to be 2x3 to get 6 or is it 2+3 to get 5 then simplify the answer thanks for your helpAnswer by stanbon(57363)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2 index radical 7 multiplied by 3 index radical 6 ------- 7^(1/2)*6^(1/3) --- = 7^(3/6)*6^(2/6) ---- = [(7^3)*(6^2)]^(1/6) ----- = (12348)^(1/6) --- = 4.8076 =========================== Cheers, Stan H. ==============
