Wouldn't ya know it, I have been waiting for you to submit some puzzles, been waitin' patiently because you are very good about leaving me comments and you go and throw a MATH hardball at my ENGLISH hardhead. I am enjoying the effort though. Keep them comming and I will keep looking. --RAYN

I dont get it. I never get these. Is ^ meaning square root?

Not a teaser! Just an algebraic equation, albeit a trivial one

^ is how you represent an exponent, so x^(1/2) is a square root, x^2 is a square.
