 P: 1 x^(1/n) = the nth root of x (I'd use mathematical notation but I don't really know how I'm new sorry)
 HW Helper P: 3,420 Try raising both sides to the power of n.
 HW Helper P: 2,115 $$x^{\frac{1}{n}}=\sqrt[n]{x}$$ is usually true by definition as those are two notations for the same function.
