May 23, 2018

$\frac{1}{32}$

#### Explanation:

${\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{5}$
$\Rightarrow {1}^{5} / {2}^{5}$
$\Rightarrow \frac{1 \cdot 1 \cdot 1 \cdot 1 \cdot 1}{2 \cdot 2 \cdot 2 \cdot 2 \cdot 2}$
$\Rightarrow \frac{1}{32}$

1 over 32

#### Explanation:

So we have

${\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{5}$
which is actually equal to
$\left({1}^{5} / {2}^{5}\right)$
|And as ${1}^{5}$=1 and ${2}^{5}$=32 -->
${\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{5}$ =$\frac{1}{32}$
So the solution is :
${\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)}^{5}$ =$\left({1}^{5} / {2}^{5}\right)$ =$\frac{1}{32}$
