1. ## Square root equation

Hello,

I'm back in school after 26 years and in need of some help. I don't know how to say this problem, much less solve it. Since I don't know how to say it and I don't know how to type this from my keyboard, I haven't had much luck with searched. Any help would be appreciated.

$\left(\sqrt2^{\sqrt2}\right)^{\sqrt2}=\sqrt2^2=2$

TThank lyou for responding. Do you mind explaining this solution. I don't understand how to work this. Also, how would I say this equation?

$(a^b)^c = a^{bc}$

$(\sqrt{2}^{\sqrt{2}})^\sqrt{2} = \sqrt{2}^{\sqrt{2}\cdot \sqrt{2}} = \sqrt{2}^2 = 2$

How would you say it?

The square root of 2 raised to the power of square root of two again raised to the power of square root of two equals 2
