To get your answer, you'd first take negative 6 times itself. That would give you positive 36. So negative 6 to the second power would be 36. But you're not raising it to the second power, you're raising it to the negative power. That means take 1 over it. So instead of 36, your answer would be the inverse, which means 1/36.

Log -3 equals?

There is no answer - it is an error: negative numbers do not have logarithms. The log if a number tells to what power the (positive) base must be raised to get the number. Raising any positive number to any power will never result in a negative number, so it is an error to try and take the log of a negative number.
