The sides of a square are 2^4/9 inches long. What is the area of the square?
I've never done "to the power" on calculating the area of a square >.< isn't all sides suppose to be equal
is there a picture?
No thats the only thing the question gives ;-; I so dont understand this
if you are given one side of a square has measurement a, then the area of the square is a*a or a^2
A screenshot of what I see http://i.imgur.com/btrB24L.png
CAn anyone help ;-;
the answer is going to be 2^8/9 because you just have to add the exponents
multiply each one
"The sides of a square are \(2~^4÷9\) inches long. What is the area of the square?" Is that what you meant, Kevin?
@Condor34 do u mean 2^4/9 not 2^8/9
@na1501 multiply 4/9?
@elsa213 no think it's a fraction
so what do i multiply?
If you actually solve 2^(4/9) you get ~1.36. To find the area of a square the formula is side time side so when you multiply ~1.36 by ~1.36 you get ~1.8496 so when you solve 2^(8/9) you get ~1.851. 1.849 is similar to 1.851. Now with fractional exponents when they have the same denominator you just add them. The reason why you dont multiply the two is because it would result in a different answer.
It's c 2^8/9
thanks so much man
gave u a medal ^_^
