# How do you simplify 5^(3/2)?

Nov 17, 2016

The "simplified" version is $\frac{13}{2}$ or $6.5$.

#### Explanation:

It is already simplified, as a fraction that is.

Your alternative is to convert it into an improper fraction or a decimal value.

$= 5 \left(\frac{3}{2}\right)$

$= \frac{13}{2}$

OR

$= 6.5$

Hope this helps :)
