## anonymous 3 years ago x^y = z If x and y are irrational numbers and z is a rational number. Is there a solution?

1. anonymous

If x=(a)^1/y where x is irrational , y is irrational and a is rational then, x^y = a

transcendental means irrational?

$$[(\sqrt 2)^{\sqrt 2}]^{\sqrt 2}=2$$

8. UnkleRhaukus

transcendental is a sub set of irrational
