Exponent Question Greetings, Is x^2 equal to (x^2) or (x^2)? Thanks, DR 
Re: Exponent Question Both. By sticking parenthesis around it, you haven't changed anything. I will assume you were asking about (x)^2 > but it's not equal to that. 
Re: Exponent Question Maybe I was unclear... Let's take for example: 4^2 That cannot be equal to both (4^2) and (4^2), because the first yields 16 while the second yields 16. Thanks, DR

Re: Exponent Question OK gotcha, So then to be clear: 4^2 = (4*4) and NOT (4 * 4)? 
Correct.
