# Calculate equation with irrational numbers in W|A?

GROUPS:
 I guess the WolframAlpha Servers don't stop to compute with irrational Numbers.... sqrt2^-4^16/sqrtpi^-4^2 Is ZERO ;)If I want to ddos the servers it is very easy because they stack with this computation and else...
 Marco Thiel 2 Votes Hi A.H.,the input you use is very difficult to understand. Are there parenthesis somewhere? So you mean: (Sqrt[2]^(-4))^16/(Sqrt[Pi]^(-4))^2 or (Sqrt[2^(-4)])^16/(Sqrt[Pi^(-4)])^2 or Sqrt[2^(-4)^16]/(Sqrt[Pi^(-4)^2] or something else? When you write sqrtpi is that supposed to be a square root of something or use a variable name?Here are some versions that work: interpretation 1, interpretation 2, interpretation 3. Cheers,Marco
