Negative one half to the fourth power equals 0.0625

Answer #1:Negative one-half to the negative 4th power, ie -((1/2)-4) equals -16Answer #2:Negative one-half to the negative 4th power, ie (-1/2)-4 equals +16

Do you mean: x8 = 256 If so: x = 2 because 28 = 256

The square root of x to the seventeenth power is x to the eighth and a half power. If x is negative, the answer is imaginary.

16,384 is my best guess. -256/2 = -128 -128 + -128 = -256 -128 * -128 = 16384.
