How can I write `2^((n-1)/3)`

or anything similar in `LaTeX`

? I am new to the whole thing, but I tried giving it a shot and it doesn't look the way I want it too. It looks like I am taking the 2 to the power of parenthesis, which is silly.

Just to give a little closure...

Depends on what you want. As egreg said, you can go by

`$2^{(n-1)/3}$`

...or you could also try using

`\frac{numerator}{denominator}`

, as in`$2^{\frac{n-1}{3}}$`
