Can someone explain the logic behind this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For instance if 2 to the 3rd power = 2 x 2 x 2 =8

So 2 to the 3rd power is telling me I have 2 multiplied by itself 3 times.

Now how would I solve for 2 to the 1/3rd power? It is telling me I have 2 multiplied by itself 1/3 times but how do you solve this?

Can you show me how you would work that out?

Thanks.
