    Re: power

    What have you tried?

    Where are you stuck?

    According to the rules for the Homework Help in this Forum:
    "...
    NOTE: You MUST show that you have attempted to answer your question in order to receive help. ...

    On helping with questions: Any and all assistance given to homework assignments or textbook style exercises should be given only after the questioner has shown some effort in solving the problem. If no attempt is made then the questioner should be asked to provide one before any assistance is given. "​
    So you see, our hands are tied until we hear more from you.
