Simplify the following:

(-125)^(1/3)

 

(-125)^(1/3) = (-1×125)^(1/3) = (-1×5^3)^(1/3):

(-5^3)^(1/3)

 

(-5^3)^(1/3) = (-1)^(1/3) (5^3)^(1/3) = (-1)^(1/3)×5^(3/3) = (-1)^(1/3)×5:

 

5(-1)^(1/3)

Here is a correction to you answer guest :)

 

Simplify the following:

(-125)^(1/3)

 

(-125)^(1/3) = (-1×125)^(1/3) = (-1×5^3)^(1/3):

(-5^3)^(1/3)

 

(-5^3)^(1/3) = (-1)^(1/3) (5^3)^(1/3) = (-1)^(1/3)×5^(3/3) = (-1)^(1/3)×5:

 

= -1*5

= -5

 

(-1)^(1/3) = -1 becasue  (-1)^3=-1

(-125)^1/3

 

since 

 (-5)^3=-125

 

(-125)^(1/3) = -5
