**Simplify 2x(x ^{(2/3)})**

## Answer: 2x^{5/3}

## Solution

2x(x^{(2/3)})

2x(x⅔)

**Move x into the bracket**

2(x⅔x)

**Raise x to the power of 1**

2(x⅔ x¹)

Use the **product rule a ^{m}a^{n} = a^{m+n}** to combine exponents

2x⅔+¹

**Write 1 as a fraction with common denominator**

2x⅔+³/³

**Combine the numerators over the common denominator**

2x²+³/³

Add 2 and 3

**2x ^{5/3}**
