# How do you simplify #2a^(1/5)-6a^(1/5)#?

The first thing to take note of here is that we have like terms just as 2x - 6x are like terms.

This cannot be simplified further apart from perhaps writing it as:

To simplify 2a^(1/5) - 6a^(1/5), you can combine the like terms, which in this case are the terms with the same exponent, a^(1/5). So, 2a^(1/5) - 6a^(1/5) equals (2 - 6)a^(1/5), which simplifies to -4a^(1/5).
