The arithmetic answer is wrong. Exponentiation goes from right to left, not left to right, so the correct answer is 65536: "If exponentiation is indicated by stacked symbols, the usual rule is to work from the top down, because exponention is right-associative" --Wikipedia.

Math is cool. But sometimes math is dumb. This is one of those cases. I changed the question. But 2222 is so much better.

Right to left. Seriously?

This isn't a case of math being dumb; left to right would be dumb here. The reason is that (a^b)^c simplifies to a^bc, so you never need to write it, whereas a^(b^c) doesn't simplify any further. Anyway, you shouldn't think of it as left to right versus right to left; it's really top to bottom.

If you put 2^2^2^2 in the calculator the answer is 256. I think that's what the question was initially going for. That threw me off...just so happened to have a TI-84 sitting on my desk.

But it's not dumb at all. Everything that is above the first 2 is its exponent: 2 to the power 2^(2^2), and so on. I can't write the expression here as you do, but it stands for 2^(2^(2^2))) = 2^(2^4) = 2^16 = 65536.

That's why it's written the way it is - to make it clear that they are separate. It's basically 2^2^(2^2).

I agree on the 256 answer here. As the problem is presented mostly in text, it would make good sense to interpret the question as: "What is 4 to the power of 4"!

The question was wrong and has been modified. It was using the expression that the Quizmaster has put in his Aug 23 comment.

Apparently, polar bears do not actually hibernate. Only pregnant females take some kind of power nap during the winter. So you may want to change that answer.

Done thanks. Brown Bears and Polar Bears are pretty close in size anyway, and we already accepted both answers.

If polar bears hibernated, they would starve to death. They lose weight all summer waiting for winter to return so that they can hunt. Shorter winters are making for scrawnier polar bears, and perhaps their eventual extinction.

(1) I agree that you should accept planes. (2) Just because polar bears in particular don't hibernate, that doesn't invalidate the answer to that question. (3) You should accept either 256 or 65536 to cover both theories.

How is math a theory? It's straight up 65,536, not 256. If the creator intended to circumvent the order of operations, he'd use parenthesis. It's like saying 2+3x4 = 20 is a valid answer.

He did...kind of. That's why it's written with text in the middle and exponents on the outside - it essentially means 2^2^(2^2). I think that's reasonably clear from the phrasing.
