# How to express elements in a field of prime order and power of a prime order using the same function?

When field size is of the form $p^m$, where $p$ is a prime and $m>1$ is a positive integer, there is no problem. For example

```
F.<x> = GF(5^2)
print F.fetch_int(4)
```

It outputs : 4.

But if we take field size is in the form $p^1$, then the above code does not working. For example

```
F.<x> = GF(5^1)
print F.fetch_int(4)
```

It gives errors. How can I fix this using the same function in both the cases?
