$\Large \sqrt[5]{-32} \to -2$ Or in other words, $-\frac12 \times-\frac12 \times-\frac12 \times-\frac12 \times-\frac12 ==-\frac{1}{32}$

6. saifoo.khan

Lol @ sat.

$\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)^5=-\frac{1}{32}$

8. saifoo.khan

Where's the negative sign? :O

9. saifoo.khan

$\left(-\frac{1}{2}\right)^5=-\frac{1}{32}$

10. saifoo.khan

$\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)^5 \ne -\frac{1}{32}$
