what is the difference btwn 5^3 and (5)^3?

When ever they have a question in which they have a a number squared and then they have another question right after it asking the difference between the same question in parenthesis..is it a trick question? is the answer the same or do the parenthesis make a difference? if the parenthesis make a difference can you please tell me how? thank you so much in advance..:)

  • math -

    Those two values will have the same value if put in the way you wrote it.
    If the equation was written like:
    (5+5)^3 it would yield a different amount rather than 5+5^3.
    So,it all depends on how the equation is written.
