can someone please verify this?

    My answer,
    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
    2/3 (2)^3/2
    2/3 (sqrt(2))^3
    2/3 (2(sqrt(2)))
    4/3 (sqrt(2))

    Perfect, thanks!
    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.

    Good luck.
