i get powers, but whats a base?
LOL
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 ...
$\displaystyle
\sqrt[3]{2^2}
$
hope this help but i feel like it didnt :P
Base, as stated above, is b in the b^n form. This also relates to base when referring to the base of a positional numeral system.
Standard numbers are base 10 where each position is represented as 10^n where n is its position. Example: 236 = 2*10^2 + 3*10^1 + 6*10^0
For a binary number the base is two. 1010 = 1*2^3 + 1*2^1 (this number is the same as 10 in base 10)
