Can someone please help with this.
If you look at a scientific calculator, like the one that comes with microsoft for example.
The symbols I want to know about are
and this: x^2
The caret operator x^y means x raised to the y power.
x^2 = x squared = x*x
x^3 = x cubed = x*x*x
x^(1/2) = square root of x
Good to know. I thought it was sex and autosomal chromosomes giving each other high fives.
