16/3 - ln 3 - 4/3(sqrt(2))
You have 16/3,
2/3 (8) = 16/3
Where you went wrong,
You have, 2/3 (sqrt(8))
It should be,
2/3 (0 + 2)^3/2

I agree that your answer is more simplified..
but my answer is definitely not wrong because
2/3(sqrt(8)) and 4/3(sqrt(2)) are the same.
Because.. 8=4x2 and sqrt of 4 is 2.. so you take 2 out of the sqrt to be 2. 2x2 is 4. so you end up with 4/3(sqrt(2)). Do you agree?

I guess it depends on your teacher, because
(2)^3/2 means (sqrt(2))^3
I've never seen anyone interpret this as
The first way will always get you the correct, simplified answer. If I were you, I would get in the habit of doing this the first way.
Radicals should always be in the lowest terms. Any teacher I had would take off half credit for your answer.
