-3/-3 is a double negative, and therefore equals a positive. Three thirds - the result - is equal to one. When you square (take to the power of two) the number one, you get one, because one times itself is one. If you were saying -3/(-32), however, your result will be different. -32 is another double negative, equalling a positive. Three times three is nine. therefore, your result for that is -3/9. When simplified, this turns into -1/3.

What is one to the fourth power?

One to any power is still one. If the power is positive, you have 1 times itself over and over again, so it does not change. If the power is zero, the answer is always one, no matter the number. If the power is negative, you find the reciprocal of the expression and make the power positive. If the base of the exponential expression is 1, it is always one.
