Work Step by Step

RECALL: For any non-negative real number $a$, $\sqrt[4]{a^4}= a$ Rationalize the denominator by multiplying $\sqrt[4]{x^3}$ to both the numerator and the denominator. Simplify using the rule above to obtain: $\require{cancel} =\dfrac{5 \cdot \sqrt[4]{x^3}}{\sqrt[4]{x} \cdot \sqrt[4]{x^3}} \\=\dfrac{5\sqrt[4]{x^3}}{\sqrt[4]{x^4}} \\=\dfrac{5\sqrt[4]{x^3}}{x}$
