Hi it is probably easy for most of you but I am stuck on a question and I need to raise a number to the power of a fraction.
How do I go about inputting it on a calculator I have a Ti 36 x.
For instance 5 to the power of 2/5
Hi it is probably easy for most of you but I am stuck on a question and I need to raise a number to the power of a fraction.
How do I go about inputting it on a calculator I have a Ti 36 x.
For instance 5 to the power of 2/5
$\displaystyle 5^{\frac{2}{5}} $ would be the 5th root if you like of 2 then square this number..power 2. so:
by 5th root i mean 2 to the power of ? =5
$\displaystyle (^{5}\sqrt{5})^{2} $
which would be 1.9036.. on a calc
on my calc i press shift then 'x to the power button' and that usually does the trick..
