1st expression = ~.5443Dear forum users,

I've been trying to figure this out.

View attachment 12584

Could someone explain to me how this is the answer?

Thank you in advance!

2nd expression = ~2.0528

As noted by the expansion that tkhunny is using the "solution" given in the OP is incorrect. The actual answer has a \(\displaystyle \sqrt{2}\) in the denominator. The fraction in front of the radicals is wrong as well.1st expression = ~.5443

2nd expression = ~2.0528

Is this the solution to a different problem?

I am following it yes.

I looked for the answer again and yes the solution is to a different problem.As noted by the expansion that tkhunny is using the "solution" given in the OP is incorrect. The actual answer has a \(\displaystyle \sqrt{2}\) in the denominator. The fraction in front of the radicals is wrong as well.

But my original answer is still wrong.

So I will be trying to figure it out later today.

Thank you

You posted two images:Dear forum users, I've been trying to figure this out.

\(\displaystyle \boxed{\left(\dfrac{2\sqrt3}{3\sqrt2}\right)^3}\) & \(\displaystyle \boxed{\frac{32}{27}\sqrt3}\)

The second image

You tell us at what step you fail to understand.

1) \(\displaystyle \frac{2\sqrt3}{3\sqrt2}=\frac{2\sqrt3\cdot\sqrt2}{3\sqrt2\cdot\sqrt2}\)

2) \(\displaystyle \frac{2\sqrt3}{3\sqrt2}=\frac{2\sqrt6}{3\cdot 2}\)

3) \(\displaystyle \frac{2\sqrt3}{3\sqrt2}=\frac{\sqrt6}{3}\)

4) \(\displaystyle \left(\frac{\sqrt6}{3}\right)^3=\frac{6\sqrt6}{27}\)

5) \(\displaystyle \boxed{\left(\frac{\sqrt6}{3}\right)^3=\frac{2\sqrt6}{9}}\) CLICK HERE

The second image is indeed the wrong solution to the problem.You posted two images:

\(\displaystyle \boxed{\left(\dfrac{2\sqrt3}{3\sqrt2}\right)^3}\) & \(\displaystyle \boxed{\frac{32}{27}\sqrt3}\)

The second imageis notthe reduction of the first.

Thank you for explaining step by step.

I failed at step 4, I used the exponent at the beginning instead of solving everything what is inside of the parentheses.

Thank you very much I appreciate the time and effort.
