You don’t see how you took that 2 out of the numerator and it resulted in 1/3? I don’t know what’s confusing you.

You should be careful how you write the expressions down. It looks like you pulled out that power of two without changing the coefficient of “y”, if it was 2 times (y to the 2/3’s) then pulling out that power of 2 would make it rad2 times (y to the 1/3). But if it was (2y) to the 2/3’s then what you did is ok.

I have three college degrees in mathematics, if you send me a PM I can help you with this in detail.

Not sure why you write sideways but everyone has different learning styles so I guess I’ll roll with it.
