Re: Numerical expression

How could I handle in Mathematica this expression?
( ( 9(3)^1/2+4(23)^1/2)^1/3 + (9(3)^1/2+4(23)^1/2)^1/3 ) / (3)^1/2)
With a lot of trouble I have found out that is equal 1, but how to get it with Mathematica?
Thanks very much.
Hi, Massimo,
The expression that you have written here does not look to have sense. Just evaluate this in Mathematica:
((Defer@(((9 ((3)^1)?2+4 ((23)^1)?2)^1)?3+((9 ((3)^1)?2+4 ((23)^1)?2)^1)?3))?((3)^1))?2
Is it what you had in mind? If yes, you can evaluate it straightforwardly:
((9 (3)^1/2 + 4 (23)^1/2)^1/3 + (9 (3)^1/2 + 4 (23)^1/2)^1/3)/(3)^1/ 2 // FullSimplify
That's what you get out:
119/18
It seems that you may have had in mind this (evaluate it):
Defer@((9 (3)^(1/2) + 4 (23)^(1/2))^(1/3) + (9 (3)^(1/2) + 4 (23)^(1/2))^(1/3))/(3)^(1/2)
If yes, it also can be directly evaluated:
((9 (3)^(1/2) + 4 (23)^(1/2))^(1/3) + (9 (3)^(1/2) + 4 (23)^(1/2))^(1/ 3))/(3)^(1/2) // FullSimplify
yielding
1 + Sqrt[23/3]
but not 1. Probably you have had something else in mind.
Have fun, Alexei
