hey everybody, i hope im posting this in the right place but i am trying to figure out how to turn :

(u+1)/2 into an exponent of u so i can multiply it by u^(1/2)

total problem:

((u+1)/2)*(u^(1/2))

Any help at all would be awesome and thanks!

hey sorry i wasn 't really clear with my question. my problem wasnt really with

u^(1/2) it was with how to turn (u+1)/2 into a exponent so i can do the rest of the problem. Im studying this for a cal II college midterm tomorrow but i dont think this is really a calculus question, i think its more algebra....not sure tho.

but thanks for your help - March 3rd 2009, 08:41 PMmollymcf2009
