I already got the answer, but it involved some guessing, what would be the best way to solve this

Can you post your working? You say it involved some guessing so it would be useful if you show where you got up to before you used guessing.

If you haven't made any progress, your first step could be to write the right-hand-side as a fraction and then move the 4 to the other side.

it was difficult to read the question as it was sideways... but you should think about expressing both sides as powers of 2.

I am wondering what guessing was involved as I assume that you know
  • The cube root of 8
  • What a negative index means
  • How to divide by 4
  • What the inverse of square root and cube are
