`t` to the 1/8th powerMath brain teasers require computations to solve.
How might a mathematician describe a number `t` held to the following condition:
When (t+1) is subtracted from t and the result is raised to the 1/8th power.
Whenever (t+1) is subtracted from `t`, you will simply be left with -1. -1 raised to the 1/8th power is the same as taking the positive root of something. When taking the positive root of any negative number, you are left with an imaginary number.
