    \[\sqrt{3^4} = 3^{\frac{4}{2}}\]

    you see the 3? it keeps its own exponent but takes onthe root of the radical as a bottom number...

    more...the square root of 3 is the same as 3 to the power of 1/2

    nope. to begin it was just sqrt(3^4) could have been any number really. and any radical. 5radical[16] = 16^1/5

    a radical is what happens when you get a fraction as an exponent

    what answer? you wanted someone to help you make radical into exponent. there is no "answer" fo be figured out. just examples.

    Keep it simple: sq rt 3 is same as 3 ^ 1/2. Sometimes the number has a square inside: sq rt of 3^2 becomes 3^2*(1/2)

    5 sqrt4 can be sqrt25*4 =sqrt100 sqrt100 = 100^1/2

    3sqrt4 = sqrt9*4 = sqrt36 = 36^1/2
