- What is exponentiation? 10 answers
I know that when you square something you can visualize it as a 2d square. When you cube it you can visualize it as a 3d cube.
2^2 -- a 2 by 2 square
2^3 -- a 2 by 2 by 2 cube
I've been puzzling over how something would look when you make it to the power of a fraction. Is it some shape with 2D and 3D aspects? Or is it just a non-regular 3d shape.
It would be nice to have an explanation and maybe some pics :)
I didn't really know what tags this should have so feel free to edit.
