I don't know the best way to type the square root or radical sign on for this web site.

( Radical sign over x within parenthesis)^4 = x^2

If x is the same as 1, then the square root of 1 is 1, I think. And 1^4 = 1. Why = x^2? Thanks.

Sqrt is the same as x^(1/2)
When this is wrapped in ^4 the exponents are multiplied. So 1/2 * 4 = 2
