Here's a quicker way to check your answer. Go to Wolfram Alpha and type in your problem. It will simplify it for you and you can see if your answer matches.

You need to be careful though when entering the problem. For example, your problem should be written there as 16^[3/2]. The ^ symbol means exponent. If there's a fraction, put the fraction inside [] brackets.
