    y2/3 = 6x + 4lnx - 2

    I have to give my answer in the form of y2 = g(x)

    I find it tricky to convert y2/3 to y2.. Can someone show me how to do it?

    Thanks

    Take both side of equation on the 3rd power
    \displaystyle \left (y^{\frac{2}{3}}\right )^3=y^2
    For RHS use
    \displaystyle \left (a+b+c)^3=a^3+b^3+c^3+3a^2c+3b^2  c+3ac^2+3bc^2+6abc
    where a=6x b=4lnx and c=-2
