# Whats the best way to show this?

## Main Question or Discussion Point

I need to take the 1.16 root of x, do I show it as;

a) $\sqrt[1.16]{x}$

OR

b) $x^{\frac{1}{1.16}}$

Thanks
AL

they're both exactly the same, but I would say b) is easier to work with and gets your point across more clearly.

I like (a), but that's only because I almost never see it, and I didn't know how to do it in latex until just now.
