    I assume you know \[ \sqrt{4}= \pm 2 \] or \[ 4 = (-2)^2 \text{ and } 4 = 2^2\] 2 and -2 are the 2nd root (commonly referred to as the square root) of 4

    I want you to explain the concept of this formula not what does it say

    we can also write that as \[ 4^\frac{1}{2} = \pm 2 \] Let's write 4 as a complex number 4 + 0i in rectangular form in polar form \[ 4 = 4 e^{i 2\pi} = 4( \cos(2 \pi) + \sin(2\pi) \ i)\\ = 4(1+0i)= 4\] and if we want to be complete, we should write that with an angle of 2pi n where n is any integer. \[ 4 = 4 e^{i 2\pi\ n} \] now if we take the square root we get \[ 4^\frac{1}{2}= \left( 4 e^{2\pi\ n} \right)^\frac{1}{2} \\ = 4^\frac{1}{2}\cdot e^{\frac{i 2\pi\ n}{2}} \\ = 2 e^{i \pi\ n} \] if n is 0 (or in general, if n is even) the exponent is a multiple of 2pi and we will get +2 if n is 1 (or odd), then exp(i pi) = cos (pi )+ i sin(pi) = -1 and we will get -2

    we can extend that idea to the "nth root" (rather than just 2) and we can do the same "true" complex numbers (not just 4, which is real)

    **i answer many people and get alot of medals*** your profile shows you answer 251. Ask back after you reach 1000 or 1500
