i am unsure.

from here, i would divide the two to the other side, making it.

that is an option on my paper, but i am still confused to the significance of what the 5 is?

actually, as I was just sitting here thinking, is that the number it would represent that was sharing the powers? - June 15th 2007, 06:10 PMJhevon

ummm, is

and look at your statement again. you said x = 5^2 means x is the squareroot of 5. that makes no sense. if x = 5^2, it means x is the square of 5, since if we square 5, we get 5^2 which is equal to x - June 15th 2007, 06:47 PMbeli3ve
