just make a substitution using, say, u to get a quadratic.
For example, in #6, let u = x^1/3 and you have
2u^2+5u6=0
u = 1/4 (5 ± √73)
Since u=x^1/3, x = u^3, so
x = 1/16 (305 ± 37√73)
Kinda nasty, but straightforward.
How about #5? Let u=x^25, to get
2u^2  13u + 20 = 0
(u4)(2u5) = 0
so, u=4,5/2
That means
(x^25) = 4 or (x^25) = 5/2
x^2=9 or x^2 = 15/2
x = ±3 or ±√(15/2)
