how would i write out this equation into a simplified experssion using exponents.
(81a^8b^4)^1/4

You need to multiply all of the exponents by the 1/4
write 81 and 3^4 first then multiply the 4 times 1/4 =1 so you just have 3^1 which is 3.
Now, can you do a and b?

when i do this i get 3a^2sqrtb is that correct?
