(9^(3/x))^4

(without calculator)

2. Relevant equations

a^n/m = m'root'a^n

3. The attempt at a solution

adding the powers: 3/x*4/1 = 12/x

9^12/x

x'root'9^12 = ?

----------------------

Ok, it's supposed to be 27, but how can you know something that are being rooted from x?

The calculator says it's 2.655 when I use thex'root'9^12(It's incorrect and I'm not allowed to do that)

How does it get that from x? And what is the correct way to find it?
