    How do I complete this question?:

    (2 1/4)^1 1/2
    not really sure how to use this bbcode, but this is the correct version:

    (2 1/4)^1 1/2
    (2 and a quarter) to the power of 1 and a half

    As TeeEm said writing everything as improper fractions and then using what you know about indices will help you answer this question.
