Sorry, I meant square root of 4x to the fourth, unless you mean (four times four) to the fourth, which would be (4*4)^4 and would be solved differently. 4x^4 = 4x * 4x * 4x * 4x, then find the square root.

Square root of four to the fourth? This'd be written as sqrt(4^4). 4^4 = 4 * 4 * 4 * 4. Find the product of that, then the square root of the product.

Actually, I come to h = 160 here (?) so I think I've done something wrong. Are you not supposed to distribute when multiplication is used as in (32 * h)? Sorry, you might want to wait for someone else to explain.

Is there enough information to solve this? I can't figure out how it might be set up (even plugging in answers to see if they fit) without more information, such as some about the rectangle, or the area of the triangle. Maybe someone else knows.

Plankton, I think, as most other marine organisms depend [at least indirectly] on plankton, as they feed on them or feed on those who feed on them, and the absence of the base of a marine food chain would cause more problems overall than that of a group of predators.

Fractions are converted to decimals by dividing a by b in a/b. For example, 3/4 = .75. Some decimals and fractions are easy to remember -- such as 1/2 = .5, but most you will have to calculate on your own.
