It depends on the base number, but usually no. Consider the following examples:

10-1 = 1

1-1 = 0.1

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Can you have more than one exponent on top of a number?

Yes, you can, but it starts getting complicated. You can, for example have a number raised to an exponent that is itself a number raised to an exponent, or you can have a number raised to an exponent and the result raised to another exponent.


Is a exponent a number with a plus or - sign?

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.


What do Negative exponents indicate?

Raising a number to a negative exponent gives you the reciprocal of the same number raised to the corresponding positive exponent. For example, 32 = 9, so 3-2 = 1/9


What is a negative exponent?

When you have a number raised to a negative exponent, you move to the left rather than the right in decimal places. E.g. 103 = 1000 10-3 = 0.001 More specifically, when you have a negative exponent, you are taking the reciprocal of what the positive exponent would give. 24 = 16, but 2-4=(1/16) ■

What is 0.1 as a negative exponent?

Anything to the power of a negative number is equal to one divided that "anything" raised to the positive value of the exponent. For example:a-b = 1/ abSo you can think of this by expressing the number as a fraction. Consider, what is 0.1 as a fraction? The answer is 1/10. This means that when expressed as an exponent, it would be 10-1.


When a number is raised to a power what is it called?

The power could then be called an exponent. The number that is being raised to a power is called the base. In the case of 42, the exponent is 2 and the base is 4.
