Here,
\((\sqrt[3]{4})(\sqrt{5.5})=(\sqrt{22})(\sqrt[3]{x})\)

or \((\sqrt[3]{4}) * 2.3 = 4.6* (\sqrt[3]{x})\) { use of calculator to find \(\sqrt{5.5}\) and \(\sqrt{22}\) }

or \((\sqrt[3]{4}) = 2 * (\sqrt[3]{x})\) (dividing both sides by 2.3)

Cubing both sides
\(4 = 8* x\)

or \(x = \frac{1}{2}\)

I THINK GRE CALCULATOR DOES NOT ALLOW TO CALCULATE ROOT EITHER, SO WE NEED TO PASS IT.

Corrected line: Raise both sides to the power of 3 to get: \((\sqrt[3]{\frac{4}{x}})^3=2^3\)


Good catch - thanks!
I've changed the exponent.

Kudos for you!!

pranab01 is estimating those roots.
It's a good strategy.

By the way, the GRE's onscreen calculator does have a square root button.
