This video explains how to simplify roots that are either greater than four or have a term raised to a large number by rewriting the problem using rational exponents.  Remember that every root can be written as a fraction, with the denominator indicating the root's power.  When simplifying radicals, since a power to a power multiplies the exponents, the problem is simplified by multiplying all the exponents together.  (1:44)
