When a negative number is raised to an even power the result is 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
It is the positive form of the number raised to that power, multpilied by -1 raised to that power.
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.
(-1)^3 = -1 Every negative number raised to the odd power is 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 ...
No. Negative numbers to even powers are positive.
-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.
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)
Any number raised to the power of zero is always equal to 1
Yes because any number raised to the power of zero is always equal to 1
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.
Any number x raised to a negative power -y is equivalent to the reciprocal of x raised to y. So, 10-73 would be the fraction 1 over the number 1 with 73 zeroes after it. A very small number indeed!
It is the negative of the value of the number multiplied by itself two times (not three times - as most of us are incorrectly taught).
10-1 = 1/10 A number raised to a negative power is equal to the reciprocal of the number raised to the power. So a-b = (1/a)b = 1/ab
It is 1 because any number raised to the power of 0 is always one
Any negative number to the power of 0 is always -1
10-7 is smaller than 10-2.
You should try it. For example, (-2)3 = (-2)(-2)(-2) = -8.
