    1/2 exponent means a square root. So square root of 25 over square root of 9

    okk so that's the answer they are looking for? I thought it could be something like that, but wasn't sure how the 1/2 came into play

    Like everyone said, the power of 1/2 is the same as a square root. So yes. :)
