3x^1/3 / 6x^2/3
I got the answer of 1/2x^-1/3 . This was the right answer, however it allowed you to simplify that answer to:
1 / 2(3.x) , where the 3. means cube root. So 2(cuberoot of x). It is written as a fraction.
I understand how I got the first answer. What I don't understand is how they get the second answer in the form of a fraction.
I get that if you have a number to the power of 1/3 it cuberoots the number. However it's a negative which makes it more confusing.
goes to x^(1/3)/2x^(2/3)
then to x^(1/3)*x^-(2/3)/2
finally to 1/x^(1/3)
which is 1/cuberoot(x)
so your second stage is slightly wrong
