## Proof that the nth root of a times nth root of b is equal to nth root of ab

Consider the following multiplications. . Also . Try also several calculations like these and observe what happens. From these calculations, we can observe that and or, in general . We now, prove our conjecture. Theorem: Proof If we multiply the expression on the left hand side by itself n times, we have . On the […]
