Good afternoon,

I solved the problem below and arrived at the wrong answer. I cannot figure out what I did incorrectly ans was hoping you could help with it! I have also attached an image of what it looks like formatted correctly.

Thank you for your time :)

Simplify. Assume that all variables are positive.

(b^2)/(³√6b^2)

The answer I got is b√6b/6

To do this, I would first put all terms under the cube root.

Note that b^2 is ³√b^6.

This makes the fraction into ³√[b^6/(6b^2)].

Since b^6/b^2 b^4, that is ³√(b^4/6).

Since we have a b^4 and are taking a cube root, that is the same as b³√b.

This makes the fraction into b³√(b/6).

Now since we don't like cube roots in the denominator of a fraction, multiply the top and bottom by 6^2, which is 36.

That gives b³√(36b/216) = (b/6)³√(36b).

It looks like what was forgotten in finding the solution is that the 6 has a cube root as well.

This makes 1/³√6 = ³√36 / 6.
