Hi,Raw Message

This question is probably going to fall into the category of extremely

stupid in this forum, but I am working through a financial course at

the moment, and it is starting to test my less than perfect grasp of

basic algebra, so I am doing a bit of refresher work.

I am trying to evaluate (3^2 .2^2)^2

to which my text is telling me the answer should be 1296, and to my

immense frustration I can't come up with anything remotely resembling

that answer.

Any chance someone here can point out what I'm missing?

TIA, Ian
