I need help for the problem shown above.

Note by Pranjal Rs 3 years, 10 months ago

Sort by:

Multiply numerator and denominator by 5^(1/16) - 1, and apply a^2 - b^2 = (a-b)(a+b) a couple of times, you get

x = 4(5^(1/16 - 1)/(5 - 1) = 5^(1/16) - 1

x + 1 = 5^(1/16)

(x + 1)^48 = 5^(48/16) = 5^3 = 125
