# Removing powers out of an integral watch

1. Is this possible?
2. Well do you think e^(1/3) is a constant?

Is this possible?
It would be possible in a different setting, e is just a number and so is e^(1/3) so there's no harm in pulling it out. However in this case, your indices aren't right.

4. constant or not the algebra is not correct from an indices point of view

Indeed. e is just a number and so is e^(1/3) so there's no harm in pulling it out.

Yes, yes, I've added that bit in. As physicsmaths would say: chill.
7. Could I be a bit strange and ask what pen you used to write that out?

OK thanks. You can't take that out, however:

Tha's not correct either. May I suggest you google "indices laws" and refresh your knowledge?

Indeed, that's my point.

I suggest you amend your original post where you said it's removable. It might confuse a reader.
