i have a guess

9. anonymous

What value of p solves the equation?

10. misty1212

my guess is it is $\huge p^{-5}=\frac{1}{243}$ am i right?

11. anonymous

yes

12. misty1212

ok this is the same as $p^5=243$

13. misty1212

think of a number that, when multiplied by itself 5 times, givie $$243$$ hint, it has to be pretty small

4?
