Evaluate each of the following.
Thus, here is what we are asking in this problem.
251/2 = ?
By using the equivalence from the definition we can rewrite this as,
? 2 =25
Thus, all that we are actually asking here is what number we squared to get 25. In this case that is (hopefully) simple to get. We square 5 to get 25. Thus,
251/2 = 5
Thus what we are asking here is what number did we move up to the 5th power to get 32?
321/5 = 2 because 25 = 32
