So if you just want to use a calculator to evaluate that expression, Um, depending on what kind of calculate you have, you might have something slightly different. But I'm just using the scientific calculator that comes on most Windows computers. So I'll just walk through how to do it there. And it should be kind of similar for any other calculator. Uh, the way you plug it in, my just look a little bit prettier. So, first, since we have those parentheses, I'm going to go ahead and start on the inside, so all but my parentheses and I'm gonna type 5.23 and then I'll come down here, turn it negative, and then I'm going to close my parenthesis. Now, this is supposed to be the base of our number. So then we're just going to come over here and do this X to the y. So it takes the base to be whatever we had last. So the X and then you can see up here how I have that carrot, and this may be the symbol you also have to use on your calculator, and then we'll just pull you in. Whatever we have in the numerator, which in this case is five. And we come down here and hit equals. And then that will be approximately our answer. It may go on a little bit more, or that may be exactly it. Um, but, yeah, you could probably round to a couple of decimal points if you wanted. Um, but I would say this is our answer. And also again, depending on how your calculator is set up, you may need to plug it in. Kind of like how I have it up top there. And remember, those princes are important.
