What is the cube root of w?
1. the 5th root of w is 64
2. the 15th root of w is 4

The MGMAT solution is quite complicated and un-intuitive for me- is there another way to think about this problem?

thanks

What is the value of w^(1/3)?

Statement 1:
w^(1/5) = 64.
Since we can solve for w, we can determine the value of w^(1/3).
SUFFICIENT.

Statement 2:
w^(1/15) = 4.
Since we can solve for w, we can determine the value of w^(1/3).
SUFFICIENT.
