Work Step by Step

$\dfrac{\sqrt[3]{y^{5}}}{8}+\dfrac{5y\sqrt[3]{y^{2}}}{4}$ Simplify the first term: $\dfrac{\sqrt[3]{y^{5}}}{8}+\dfrac{5y\sqrt[3]{y^{2}}}{4}=\dfrac{y\sqrt[3]{y^{2}}}{8}+\dfrac{5y\sqrt[3]{y^{2}}}{4}=...$ Evaluate the sum and simplify if possible: $...=\Big[\dfrac{y+10y}{8}\Big]\sqrt[3]{y^{2}}=\dfrac{11y}{8}\sqrt[3]{y^{2}}=\dfrac{11y\sqrt[3]{y^{2}}}{8}$
