# What is 16 to the power of 1/4?

A fractional exponent is a method or a technique in which powers and roots are expressed together.

## Answer: 16 to the power of 1/4 is 2.

Let us see the solution step by step.

**Explanation:**

16 to the power of 1/4 can be written as 16^{(1/4)}.

Let us rewrite 16 as 2^{4}

16^{(1/4)} = 2^{4}^{(1/4)}

Applying the exponent rules, (a^{m})^{n }= a^{mn}

So we cancel the common factor of 4 to get 2^{1 }= 2

### Thus, 16 to the power of 1/4 is 2.
