Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If 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.
