# How do you simplify  ( 3 ) ^(1/4)?

$\sqrt[4]{3}$
3 is a prime number so it can not be a product of whole numbers other then $1 \times 3$. Thus ${3}^{\frac{1}{4}} \to \sqrt[4]{3}$ becomes imprecise if you reduce it to a decimal value through some process.
Consequently, if you wish to maintain precision you can only write it in forms that 'boil down to' ${3}^{\frac{1}{4}} \text{ or } \sqrt[4]{3}$
