Work Step by Step

Simplifying the radical terms by extracting the root of the factor that is a perfect power of the index results to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \sqrt[3]{6x^4}-\sqrt[3]{48x} \\\\= \sqrt[3]{x^3\cdot6x}-\sqrt[3]{8\cdot6x} \\\\= \sqrt[3]{(x)^3\cdot6x}-\sqrt[3]{(2)^3\cdot6x} \\\\= x\sqrt[3]{6x}-2\sqrt[3]{6x} .\end{array} Combining the like radicals results to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} x\sqrt[3]{6x}-2\sqrt[3]{6x} \\\\= (x-2)\sqrt[3]{6x} .\end{array}
