    I've never done "to the power" on calculating the area of a square >.< isn't all sides suppose to be equal

    if you are given one side of a square has measurement a, then the area of the square is a*a or a^2

    the answer is going to be 2^8/9 because you just have to add the exponents

    "The sides of a square are \(2~^4÷9\) inches long. What is the area of the square?" Is that what you meant, Kevin?

    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.
