SAT Math Question #2 (permalink) Tue May 22, 2012 23:52 pm   SAT Math Question

since b = (2/3), we can rewrite a^b and change that into a^(2/3).


a^(2/3) = 4

the trick for all exponent problems is that you have to get all the numbers into prime bases. so we turn that 4, into 2^2:

a^(2/3) = 2^2

We can then take both sides to the (3/2) power (so that the 2/3 cancels out):

[a^(2/3)]^(3/2) = [2^2]^(3/2)
You will now see that:

a = 2^3 = 8
