Let a, b be integers a,b>0 show that if a^3 | b^2 then a|b(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(Consider the prime factorization of a and b)

I've tried setting up generic prime factorization of a and b but then dont get any where, i'm not very strong at this subject.

Any kind of hints / where to start would help alot thanks!
