Q: A negative number raised to an even power will be positive or negative?

Write your answer...

When a negative number is raised to an even power the result is a positive number

It is the positive form of the number raised to that power, multpilied by -1 raised to that power.

Yes

No, or more accurately "not necessarily".A negative to any even power is positive. -2, -4, -6 etc. are even, so a negative number raised to any of those powers will be positive.However, a negative number raised to an odd negative power (-1, -3, -5 etc.) will be negative.

No. Negative numbers to even powers are positive.

A positive number times a positive number is always positive. A negative number times a negative number is always positive. Therefore, any square number will be positive. Any number to the fourth power (a square times a square) will always be positive. And so on.

yes, but the answer will remain negative. for example, (-2)3 is -8 in order to make a negative number positive, it must be raised to an even power, for example (-2)2 = 4

The answer is negative (-1 raised to the power of 100 = -1)

no number can be raised to a power and equal 0 (x^y can never = 0). e is positive (about 2.7) and any positive number can not be raised to a power and equal negative (positive number X positive number = positive number)

-120= 1 because 1.) any negative number raised to an even power will result in a positive numberand 2.) 1 raised to any power is 1.

Any number, positive or negative, raised to an even-numbered power, returns a positive number.

It is always negative when raised to an odd power and always positive when raised to an even power -2 to the third power = -2 x -2 x -2 = -8 -2 to the fourth power = -2 x -2 x -2 x -2 = +16

There is no answer - it is an error: negative numbers do not have logarithms. The log if a number tells to what power the (positive) base must be raised to get the number. Raising any positive number to any power will never result in a negative number, so it is an error to try and take the log of a negative number.

The multiplication rule of thumb always states that a negative number times a negative number results in a positive number. Since an even number is always divisible by two, any value raised to an even integer power will result in a positive number. However, a basic proof is presented as follows: (-A) * (-A) = A^2 ((-A) * (-A)) ^ 2 = ((-A * -A) * (-A * -A)) = A^2 * A^2 = A ^ 4 ...

' 1 ' raised to any power = 1 .The power can be a whole number, a fraction, a decimal,positive, or negative, rational or irrational.

Yes

negative

You fail SO badly. If we have x^4, the 4 is the exponent- the power to which a number is raised. It can be positive or negative.

-- The sum of 25 and any positive number. -- The difference of 25 and any negative number. -- The product of 25 and any positive number greater than '1'. -- The ratio of 25 to any positive number less than '1'. -- 25 raised to any positive power greater than '1'. -- 25 raised to any negative power less than '1'. -- The factorial of any number greater than 5.

it is positive =1/25

It does not work that way. A negative power is simply the reciprocal. So that x-a = 1/xa The reciprocal is negative or positive according to whether the number itself is negative or positive. [And, if the number is 0, the reciprocal is not defined.]

Please consider the following two facts: A negative number to an even power is positive; but a negative number to an odd power is negative. Any positive number is greater than any negative number.

Yes (when the power is a positive integer). It is possible to have powers that are negative, rational, irrational and even complex and there are similar rules for dealing with them.

(-1)^3 = -1 Every negative number raised to the odd power is a negative number.

Using the symbol "^" for power: a^(-b) = 1 / (a^b) and: a^b = 1 / (a^(-b)) In words: raising a number to a negative power is the reciprocal of the same number, raised to the corresponding positive power (the additive inverse).
