    It means the fifth root of x squared. You can do that two ways:-

    Take 32 as a convenient example for x. 

    You could square 32 giving 1024 and find the fifth root which is 4.

    Or you could find the fifth root of 32 which is 2 and square that to give 4 that way.

    If you just want the simplification of the algebra (x^(1/5))^2 = x^(2/5)
