a simple math riddle

Question

Guest

Can anyone make 32 out of two 2s (and no other number) using purely mathematical symbols?

I won't use a spoiler to give the answer right now.

Only in the very rare case nobody comes up with an answer shall I give it.

Hint: calculus or complicated math symbols not required. And yes, only 2 and 2, no other numbers or repititions of 2, no different base.

Nothing yet?

Ok, here is the answer (try really hard before seeing it, otherwise where is the fun?)

Explanation:

.2 = 1/5

Now "1/5th root" is really "to the power 5", isn't it?
