Its all about doing practice and understanding the rules. If you're feeling left behind, make sure you put some catch up effort in after the test.

For (16y^8)^3/4, I presume that its raised to the power 3/4? Do you know what that means - take the fourth root and cube (power 3) the result. Do this both to the number (16) and the variable (y^8).

i checked the mark scheme and the answer is 8y^5

What is the fourth root of 16 (take the square root twice)?
So 16^(3/4) = ....

so the fourth root of 16 is 2 when you cube 2 you get 8 then how do you get y^6. i know im being annoyed but im rlly upset cos im in set 1 and i dnt understand this

Do the same to the y^8 term. This is y*y*...*y, 8 times.
What is the fourth root, i.e. what multiplied by itself 4 times gives y^8? Again it may be easier to square root twice.
Then cube that answer, i.e. multiply by itself three times.
So (y^8)^3/4 = ...

i dont understand (16y^8)^(3/4)
16^(3/4) = (2^4)^(3/4) = 2^(4*3/4) = 2^3 = 8
(y^8)^(3/4) = y^(8*3/4) = y^6

Nobody gets done with maths in this life!
But it is only maths' privilege to get done with you ~
