One first thing: to write a long exponent, use curly brackets (like {10}) around it. You can click on the formulas in the corrected quote above to see how I changed it.

As for your question, the general formula is for but when you have (like here), this is , hence the general term is , hence the . - Nov 6th 2008, 12:12 PMjohett
(Happy)(Happy)(Happy) *sigh* thanks for your help!! I was stressing over this cause I have a quiz tomorrow and I wasn't sure how to get the right answers.

And thanks for showing me how to properly get the exponents.
