DivideBy0
In $a^b$, $a$ is the base and $b$ is the power.

Doesn't matter what it is, because all your base are belong to us.

so 26 = ?^9???

if so ... to get rid of the nine ... you take power of 1/9 both sides...

(26)^(1/9) = ?^(9)(1/9)

26^(1/9) = ? ^ 1

26^(1/9) = ?

... calculator says ... 1.43621

BUTTT

if you question is 2^6 = ?^9

do the same thing...

2^6(1/9) = ?^9(1/9)
2^2/3 = ?

2^2/3 is the same as ...

$
\sqrt[3]{2^2}
$

hope this help but i feel like it didnt :P
