sorry if this is worded weirdly, im 11 so...

-2 to the power of 3 is -2 x -2 x -2

anything to the 0th power is 1

then it becomes a fraction

so like 2 to the -2 power is 1/2 to the 2nd power

so 2 to the -3rd is 1/2 to the 3rd

so

1/8

* * * * *

A negative power is a reciprocal of the positive power.

So (-2)-3 = 1/((-2)3 = 1/[(-2)*(-2)*(-2)]

=1/(-8) = -1/8

What is 3 times 3 power 2x times 3 power negative 2 minus 3 power 2x times 3 and why?

I read that as: (3) x (32x) x (3-2) - (32x) x (3) = 32x(3 x 3-2 - 3) = 32x (3-1 - 3) = 32x-1(1 - 32) = -8 x 32x-1 When multiplying the same base (number) to any power, keep the base and add the powers, eg: 32x x 3-1 = 32x + (-1) = 32x-1 3 x 3-2 = 31 x 3-2 = 31-2 = 3-1

What property is x plus 3 equals x plus 3?

Addition is the same no matter what order it is in. If x is 2, then 2+3=5 and 3+2=5 are the same. They are all in the same fact family. Multiplication is the same no matter what order it is in as well. x times 3 is the same as 3 times x If x is 2, then 2*3=6 and 3*2=6 Fact families!
