math 12

posted by .

i know how to do the majority of these type of questions, but i don't know how to simplify this one all the way..

8(2x-1)^3= 125

i know you could go
(2x-1)^3= 125/8
(2x-1)^3= (5/2)^3

but how can i simplify any further, and yes there is an answer.

    nevermind i got it now

  • math 12 -

    8 is the cube of 2 and 125 is the cube of 5. Therefore
    [2(2x-1)]^3 = 5^3
    That means that 2(2x-1) = 5
    Take it from there
