square root (x-12)^2= Dec 1 | David from Melbourne, FL | 3 Answers | 0 Votes Mark favorite Subscribe Comment
With roots, you can write them two ways: the standard √(x-12), or you can also write it as (x-12)^(1/2). So in this case, since the number you have written down is the same as (x-12)^(2/2) it is the same as (x-12)^1. Dec 1 | Calvin K. Comment
