e2x=ex^2 basically means that x2=2x, in which case x2-2x=0, x = 0, 2. I don't think that's what the question meant. It could mean: e2x=(ex)2 . Which comes from one of the rules of exponents. Basically, look at it this way: Take the natural log of both sides: ln e2x= ln(ex)2 From rules of logs: (2x) ln e = (2) ln ex 2x ln e = (2) (x) ln e 2x = (2)(x)

By radical, I am assuming that you mean square root, not cube root, quartic root, or otherwise. If this is the case, then we can use fractional exponents to help. Change sqrt(x) to x^(1/2), or x to the one half power. Then we take a radical of a radical which becomes sqrt(x^(1/2)) = (x^(1/2))^(1/2) = x^(1/4). When we raise a power to a power, we multiply exponents. So the answer to the square root of the square root of x is x to the one fourth power, or the 4th root of x.
