Last thread for a while I hope (lol!). I apologise for the formatting in advance... Evaluate (1/4)^5/2 I've just done (1/2)^-2 and I got (2/1)^2 which is fine, but the fractional indice has thrown me off track.

0.25^5 = 0.000976562 Square root of 0.000976562 is 0.031249992 S0 would 0.031 be an appropriate answer?

Oh right I see! Just a quick question... How does the squareroot of (1/4)^5 equal the same as (1/2)^5 ? Thank you.
