    The cubed root of x is x1/3. So, your expression for the cubed root of the square root of 2 is [tex](2^{\frac{1}{2}})^{\frac{1}{3}}[/tex]. Can you simplify this?

    well Id have to simplify it, because im supposed to turn the new simplified exponent to a radical

    Was that an answer to Cristo's question?? He asked do you know HOW to simplify it.
