How do you get 74 out of the #s 5,9,2,6?

Using anything like multiplication, exponents, square roots, anything you can think of. You could only use the numbers once. I need this because my teacher is giving out 20 dollars to anyone who can solve it. And no one has been able to, not even the teacher. Please help.
