So if we just need to plug this into the calculator, I'll show you how to do this using the calculator that comes on most Windows computers. So the first thing we're going to do, since it's just like an exponential we're gonna worry about the base. So we have this princes. So it's going employee those At first I'll do parentheses, and I'm just going to type in the number positive first. Then come down here, make it negative, and then close my parenthesis. Now, we need to raise this to a power of 13. So depending on how your calculator is set up, um, you may have this like X to the Y here, which is going to take whatever number you have previously and then put it as X. And then whatever you plug in, next will be why, um and so then, in this case, we were just type 13 and then we'll go ahead and go are not go equals, and then this will give us what our answer, um, would be to, you know, a bunch of decimal places. Uh, and it probably still goes on for a little bit, Um, so you can pretty much just round this, whatever you want. But now, if your calculator doesn't have this X to the Y, you might see how it's formatted in the top corner right here. How it uses this like carrots, symbol, instep. And so some calculators. You would have to plug it in like this as opposed to how I did it, but regardless you should get the same solution.
