A negative exponent of a number is the same as the reciprocal of that same number to the equivalent positive exponent.EXAMPLE : 2-3 = 1/23When multiplying powers of the same base the rule is, addthe exponents.So, if the initial exponent is negative then the number has to be multiplied by a power of that number with an equivalent positive exponent greater than the negative exponent.EXAMPLE : 2-3 x 25 = 2(-3+5) = 22 (As 5 > l3l then the resultant exponent is positive)

All the powers and exponents of 1 are 1.The powers and exponents of any of the other numbers up to 10 are equivalent to the all the positive numbers - rational and irrational.

Negative numbers to even powers will be positive, negative numbers to odd powers will be negative. The answer is -16,384.

You take away the negative sign and put 1 over the base with the (now positive) exponent. Example: x to the negative 2 becomes 1 over x to the 2nd.

Rules for exponents to multiply powers, add the exponents to divide powers, subtract the exponents to find a power of a power, multiply the exponents to find a power of a quotient, apply the power top and bottom to find a power pf a product, apply the exponent to each factor in the product x0 = 1 anything to the power zero equals one x-a = 1/xa a negative exponent means "one over" the positive exponent

I presume you mean you are multiplying two powers of the same base, where both exponents are negative. Regardless of the signs of the exponents, you algebraically add the exponents. For example, 2-3 times 2-4 is 2-7; 35 times 3-8 is 3-3.

No. Negative numbers to even powers are positive.

They are not. Exponents, powers and indices are terms used for the same thing.

10, 100, 1000, 10000, ... are the positive powers. 0.1, 0.01, 0.001, ... are negative powers.

It certainly has a meaning. It is only meaningless if you consider powers as repeated multiplication; but the "extended" definition, for negative and fractional exponents, makes a lot of sense, and it is regularly used in math and science.

A negative powers is defined as the reciprocal of the corresponding positive power. For example, 10-3 is the same a 1 / 103.

Exponents are used in many different contexts and for different, though related, reasons. Exponents are used in scientific notation to represent very large and very small numbers. The main purpose it to strip the number of unnecessary detail and to reduce the risk of errors. Exponents are used in algebra and calculus to deal with exponential or power functions. Many laws in physics, for example, involve powers (positive, negative or fractional) of basic measures. Calculations based on these laws are simper if exponents are used.

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.

This is one of the laws of exponents, which states that xa * xb = x(a+b) The base is x, and the two powers (or exponents) are a and b.

Oh I hate these! I have quiz tomorrow on them, which stinks. Im in pre-algebra though

when you multiply powers with the same base.

the positive was that he basically won the WOrld War II for the allied powers. The battle of Stalingrad was the reason Germans had to surrender

You first define negative powers as the reciprocals of the positive powers ie x-a = 1/xa. You have the folowing property for positive powers: xa * xb = xa+b You extend the following property to negative powers: So xa * x-a = x0. But by definition, xa * x-a = xa * 1/xa = 1 So x0 = 1

The easiest way to solve negative powers is by writing it all out.You already know that positive powers (regular exponents) turn from something like 33 to 3 X 3 X 3 to equal 9 X 3, or 27.Essentially, negative powers works in a very similar manner.2-5 works out to this in expanded form: -2 X -2 X -2 X -2 X -2.It is best to start by multiplying that expanded form in pairs. So, you group -2 X -2, and then -2 X -2, and leave the last -2 for later. -2 X -2 is a positive 4 for both results. Now, multiply both of the 4s to get 16. Now multiply that by the remaining -2 to get -32.Tip: A shortcut method for doing this is recognizing that if the negative exponent is odd, then the answer will be multiplied just like a regular positive exponent, but the answer will be negative, and that if the negative exponent is an even number, the answer will be just like a regular positive exponent and the result will be a positive number.Ex: 2-3 = -8 , while 3-2 = 9.

10, and its negative and positive powers.

it has a negative side and a positive side that powers objects

i dont know i am asking you

They are called powers
