Hi

For this question, I calculated as follows :

5^(root(2)) * 5^(root(2))

= 5^(2root(2))

= 25(root(2))

Is the above approach correct ? Also, where can I learn more about such tricky exponent stuff ?

Regards,
Subhash

Yes, the approach is correct.

(5^{\sqrt{2}})^2=(5^{2})^{\sqrt{2}}=25^{\sqrt{2}} [Note: (x^m)^n=x^{mn}=(x^n)^m]

I think GMAT Club Math book exponents in number theory did a decent job.

Looks alright to me.

I got 25^(sqrt(2)) too.
