#### Explanation:

says:

( remember that

125x multiplied by itself twice(because of the 2 exponent) (i'll say that in math: (125x)^(2) ) then all that multiplied by itself 1/3 times (aka taking the cube root of that)

now for cube root:

you could've also instead of squaring first, then taking the cube root,

you could've of cube rooted first, then squared,

or:

you could've done both at the same time: (which is what you see in the awnser up top)
