 Question 143674: I have been trying this equation and just can't seem to get it. I have been asked to solve and reduce to a quadratic form. My first answer was 8 sq root u +12=0. But I do not think that is correct. I am to use "u" as a substitute for some variable in the equation. I have chosen U to substitute for (t+4). If anyone can let me know if I am in the right direction or how to solve this,much appreciated. (t+4)^2/3 + 7(t+4)^1/3 +12=0. This is what i did. 3rd root (u^2) + 7 * 3rd root u +12 =0 3rd root (u squared) + 7 * 3rd root U + 12=0 (1+7) 3rd root U + 12 =0 8 3rd root u = -12, 3rd root u = -12/8 reduced to -3/2 Final answer -3/2+ 3rd root u or -3/2-3rd root u I have no idea what I am doing here, so any help is appreciated.
