1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If we know pi is transcendental over Q, how could we show pi^2 is also transcendental? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution Yeah, i'm a little confused. My homework is asking 'true or false' for if pi^2 is transcendental over Q, and i'm quite sure we can assume pi is transcendental. Anyone have any tips? I'm really quite lost.
