(1) The 5th root of w is 64.
==>\(w^1^/^5 = 64\)
==>\(w^1^/^5 = 2^6\)
==>\(w^1^/^5 = 2^6^*^5^/^5\)
==>\(w^1^/^5 = 2^3^0^/^5\)
==> \(w = 2^3^0\)
==> Sufficient

(2) The 15th root of w is 4.
==>\(w^1^/^1^5 = 4\)
==>>\(w^1^/^1^5 = 4^1^5^/^1^5\)

a w^(1/5) = 64

w = 64^5 = (4^3)^5

w^(1/3) = 4^5 Hence sufficient.

b w^(1/15) = 4

w = 4^ 15

w^(1/3) = 4^5. Hence sufficient.

D.
