[tex] \sqrt{2^5} [/tex]

Step-by-step explanation:

First, deal with the product of the two powers of 2 inside the parentheses.

The two factors are powers of 2, so add the exponents.

[tex] (2^{\frac{1}{2}} \cdot 2^{\frac{3}{4}})^2 = [/tex]

[tex] = (2^{\frac{1}{2} + \frac{3}{4}})^2 [/tex]

You need a common denominator, 4, to add the fractions.

[tex] = (2^{\frac{2}{4} + \frac{3}{4}})^2 [/tex]

[tex] = (2^{\frac{5}{4}})^2 [/tex]

Now you have an exponent raised to an exponent. Multiply the exponents and reduce the fraction.

[tex] = 2^{\frac{5}{4} \times 2} [/tex]

[tex] = 2^{\frac{10}{4}} [/tex]

[tex] = 2^{\frac{5}{2}} [/tex]

When a fraction is an exponent, the numerator is an exponent and the denominator is the index of the root. A denominator of 2 means a root index of 2 which means square root.

[tex] = \sqrt{2^5} [/tex]
