Exponents, just wondering how people think of exponents and how they make sense of it Here are the basic rules \[(1) ~x^{int} = x*x*x..*x, x\] multiplied by itself int times \[(2)~x^{int1*int2}=(x^{int1})^{int2}\] \[(3)~x^{1/int2}= int2th\sqrt {x}\] \[(4)~x^{-int}=\frac{1}{x^{int}}\] \[(5)~x^{imaginary}=.....\]

    Just a LaTeX tip: use `\sqrt[n]{...}` to write \(n\)th roots, e.g. \(\sqrt[n]{\cdots}\)

    \[\LARGE x^{e^{i 2\pi}}=\frac{x}{1}\] \[\LARGE x^{e^{i \pi}}=\frac{1}{x}\] \[\LARGE x^{e^{i \pi /2}}=1 | x\] \[\LARGE x^{e^{i 3\pi /2}}=x|1\]
