With fractional exponents, the expression becomes: 3 p 64 x 4 y 2 z 5 = (64 x 4 y 2 z 5 ) 1 / 3 = 64 1 / 3 ( x 4 ) 1 / 3 ( y 2 ) 1 / 3 ( z 5 ) 1 / 3 = (4 3 ) 1 / 3 x 4 / 3 y 2 / 3 z 5 / 3 = 4 x 4 / 3 y 2 / 3 z 5 / 3 (b) Rewrite without fractional exponents the expression: 8 1 / 2 x 2 / 3 y 3 / 2 z 1 / 2 . Sol. Without fractional exponents, the expression becomes: 8 1 / 2 x 2 / 3 y 3 / 2 z 1 / 2 = 8 3 x 2 p y 3 z = 4 2 3 x 2 p y 3 z = 4 2 3 x 2 p y 3 z = 2 2 3 x 2 p y 3 z 2. Solve for x and check: x + 5 = x + 3 . Sol. We first solve for x. x + 5 = x + 3 ( x + 5) 2 = ( x + 3) 2 x + 5 = ( x + 3)( x + 3) x + 5 = x 2 + 6 x + 9 0 = x 2 + 6 x + 9- x- 5 0 = x 2 + 5 x + 4 0 = ( x + 1)( x + 4) It follows x =- 1 ,- 4 ....
