x^y=the (1/y) root of x.

I made this discovery while using my calculator a lot, with my notebook. I came up with this, because I really don't like bothering with the .5 roots, since I really don't know what they mean! I always thought, since x^2=x(x), then x^2.5=x(x)(.5x). Guess not.

Now, what this means is that when you see an exponent(or if) of .5, you can think to yourself that whatever number that is being sent to the .5 power is being square root-ed. I believe that if you see x^2.5, it equals x(x)(the square root of x). I believe that I wrote something like that down in my notebook. Anyway, I find that all of these came up in Turkey, so all of these equations that you see(except for the space-time one, that came up talking to myself in chat) should be called the Turkish equations, since I came up with them there.

Yes, but how will this help me make grill cheese sandwiches?
Better yet, how will this formula help you to convince Frog not to waste his money??
