Correction on page 36

Dipanjan pointed out a mistake in the explanation of exponentiation. The test says:

Quote:
 For the previous example, the binary representation of 6 is 110 so the second and third powers of 2 are included: 2^2 and 2^4.
This should say:

Quote:
 For the previous example, the binary representation of 6 is 110 so the second and third powers of 2 are included: 2^1 = 2 and 2^2 = 4.
(Here I've used ^ to mean exponentiation because the forum doesn't seem to be able to display exponents easily.)

Thanks again Dipanjan!
