Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2pls note that \[x ^{1/2} = \sqrt{x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2u know that \[\sqrt{4}= 2\] also \[(4)^{1/2} = (2^{2})^{1/2} = 2^{2*1/2} = 2^{1}=2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we find that \[\sqrt{4} = (4)^{1/2}\] because both give same result i.e. 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we can solve the first one as \[(16)^{1/2} = (4^{2})^{1/2} = 4^{2*1/2} = 4^{1}=4\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2see square and root are opposite operations. so when they occur together, they cancel each other out.... we can show the working for root100 as follows : \[\sqrt{100}=\sqrt{10^{2}}=10\] the square inside and root outside cancel each other out

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, u shud have all the laws in front of you and slowly try to learn them by heart....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2u r welcome, just keep in mind... \[\sqrt{x}=x ^{1/2}\] \[\sqrt[3]{x}=x ^{1/3}\] \[\sqrt[4]{x}=x ^{1/4}\] and so on....
