how do you find the square root of 49x^5?

math 
drwls,
That would be 7*x^(5/2)
For a number, you would need to know the value of x.
x^(5/2) is the square root of x^5

math 
matt,
where did you get the 2?

math 
drwls,
The square root of any number x can be written x^(1/2)
That way,
x^(1/2) * x^(1/2) = x^1 = x
