Hi,
Can someone just check my answers to these questions?

Evaluate:
1. (1/4) ^-1/2

= 1 / 1/4^1/2

= 1 / 2 sqroute 0.25

2. loge (1/e)

= loge -1

1.
sqroute 0.25 = Â½
2 sqroute 0.25 = 2*Â½ = 1
1 / 2 sqroute 0.25 = 1 / 1 = 1
the siimple answer is 1 - just like you've got!

2.
loge(1/e)
loge(e^-1)
-1*loge(e)
-1*1
-1 - rather than loge(-1)

1. (1/4) ^-1/2

is the same as (4)^1/2 i.e. the square root of 4, which is 2.
