Radicals and Exponents
For these questions you are supposed to write an equivalent expression using exponents:
(i don't know how to do this in computer talk so bear with me!!)
the square root of the square root of x^4
for this i thought the answer was:
$\displaystyle (x^\frac42)^\frac12$
the answer in the book is
x
:confused: ummm... how is the answer X????
also...
The cube root of the square root of x^6
My answer:
$\displaystyle (x^\frac62)^\frac13$
Book:
x
Obviously i'm missing something.....

Your answers are correct. What's the problem?. (4/2)(1/2)=1. That's right.

Thanks so much
I'm able to finish my homework now lol
