struggling with fractions in brackets with indices.I'm struggling with 4 to the power of 2 divided by 3 #2 20130423 21:16:51
Re: struggling with fractions in brackets with indices.A number to the power of 2 means that you find the square of it. (eg. 5 ^ 2 = 25) Last edited by SteveB (20130424 04:42:29) #3 20130423 22:29:14

Re: struggling with fractions in brackets with indices.My problem is the brackets. The calculations are fine, but it seems sometimes the brackets affect whether the answer is + or . I know that 2 negatives multiplied become positive, but it seems that certain brackets change this. #6 20130424 00:22:21
