A) $$\frac{1}{8}$$

D) $$\sqrt[3]{2}$$

e) $$2$$

Useful root property: $$\frac{\sqrt[n]{x}}{\sqrt[n]{y}}=\sqrt[n]{\frac{x}{y}}$$

Given: $$(\sqrt[3]{4})(\sqrt{5.5})=(\sqrt{22})(\sqrt[3]{x})$$

Divide both sides by $$\sqrt{5.5}$$ to get: $$\sqrt[3]{4}=\frac{(\sqrt{22})(\sqrt[3]{x})}{\sqrt{5.5}}$$

Divide both sides by $$\sqrt[3]{x}$$ to get: $$\frac{\sqrt[3]{4}}{\sqrt[3]{x}}=\frac{\sqrt{22}}{\sqrt{5.5}}$$

Apply above property to both sides to get: $$\sqrt[3]{\frac{4}{x}}=\sqrt{\frac{22}{5.5}}$$

Simplify right side: $$\sqrt[3]{\frac{4}{x}}=\sqrt{4}$$

Simplify right side: $$\sqrt[3]{\frac{4}{x}}=2$$

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

Simplify: $$\frac{4}{x} = 8$$

Solve: $$x = \frac{4}{8} = \frac{1}{2}$$

Cheers,
Brent

I think,seems little mistake in the last portion. It will be
Corrected line: Raise both sides to the power of 3 to get: $$(\sqrt[3]{\frac{4}{x}})^3=2^3$$

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.

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.
