How to solve this?

I was practising algebra when I came across this question. I don't really have this concepts in my school so I would like to know how to do that. Also I tried pressing solution button but it's not working.

Think logically: The goal is to express 216 as the product of a power of two and a power of three. To do so, we must split 216 into its prime factors: \(216 = 36 \cdot 6 = 6^3 = 3^3 \cdot 2^3\). We see that \(a=3\) and \(b = 3\), so \(a+b\) is simply \(6\). Lee Wall · 3 years, 2 months ago
