# C1 Indices question help

#1
(6^1/4*36^1/8)∕√6

The answer is 1 but I don't understand how to get there.

Sorry I know there's a way of displaying this in a clearer way but I have no idea how. Anyways thanks in advance.

36 is the same as 6^2, from there, you should be able to see that 36^1/8 is the same as (6^2)^1/8, which simplifies nicely to give 6^1/4. You can do it from here if you remember that 6^1/2 is the same as root6
