    how to raise something to multiple exponents

    I'm trying to figure out how to write

    e^lnx^2

    but the whole lnx^2 is the exponent

    Thanks in advance.

    If you have more than one character in an exponent the you must use {}.
    [TEX] e^{\ln(x^2)} [/TEX] gives  e^{ln(x^2)} .

    Whereas, without the {} you get  e^ln(x^2) .
