# What is the value of (1/8)^2?

May 2, 2018

$\frac{1}{64}$
You can multiply $\frac{1}{8}$ by itself (it's being squared): $\frac{1}{8} \cdot \frac{1}{8} = \frac{1}{64}$
${\left(\frac{a}{b}\right)}^{c} = {a}^{c} / {b}^{c} \rightarrow$ "Distribute" out the exponent
${\left(\frac{1}{8}\right)}^{2} = {1}^{2} / {8}^{2} = \frac{1}{64}$
