    Well do you think e^(1/3) is a constant?

    It would be possible in a different setting, e is just a number and so is e^(1/3) so there's no harm in pulling it out. However in this case, your indices aren't right.

    e^{x/3} = (e^{x})^{1/3} \neq e^{1/3 }\cdot e^{x} = e^{1/3 + x}

    Indeed. e is just a number and so is e^(1/3) so there's no harm in pulling it out.

    Could I be a bit strange and ask what pen you used to write that out?

    Tha's not correct either. May I suggest you google "indices laws" and refresh your knowledge?

    Indeed, that's my point.

    I suggest you amend your original post where you said it's removable. It might confuse a reader.
