aerodynamics question. Power P to fly a plane.

Has P = Mass 3/2 do not know if this means square M by 3/2? that is how i take it to be then you divide this by √S which is cross section of wing.

figures are M = 124.6kg 3/2 divided by S = √ 36m Squared

solution comes up with M 1389/S 6m = 231.5kg m to power of -1

I do not know how to get to figure of 1389?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
