Yes, you can, but it starts getting complicated. You can, for example have a number raised to an exponent that is itself a number raised to an exponent, or you can have a number raised to an exponent and the result raised to another exponent.

√2 + √2 + √2 + ... = n √2 where n is however many times you've added √2 so far. As more and more √2 are added, the value gets bigger and bigger without limit - it becomes infinite as an infinite number of √2 are added.

(x1+x2+...+x5)/5 = 34 (x1+x2+...+x5)= 5 * 34 = 170 [(x1+x2+...+x5) + x6]/6 = 35 170 + x6 = 6*35 = 210 x6 =210-170=40 Answer is 40
