# Michael's Responses in WyzAnt Answers

#### (7*8)^2/10 changed into a decimal

(7x8) to the second power divided by 10 converted to a decimal.

I know 313.6 is not the correct answer.

Thank you

+ more- less
Asked by Antoinette from Birmingham, AL

Antoinette, from the way you've typed in the expression, it looks like the exponent is two tenths (one-fifth).  So, it's not a whole number – in fact it's less than one.  When the exponent in an expression is less than 1, the result will always be smaller than the base you started with (in this case, 56).

Using your scientific calculator, enter 56 as the base and 0.2 as the exponent.  You'll find the result is a very long decimal approximately equal to 2.24!
