Polynomials cannot have negative exponent.

A number to a negative exponent is the inverse of the number to the positive exponent. That is, x-a = 1/xa

If you have a negative exponent, then put 1/the number multiplied by itself the number of times of the exponent. For example: 3-2=1/(3x3)=1/9

Example: (4x)-2 The answer to this would be 1/ 16x2. Multiply it out as if the negative exponent was not there ((4x)2), then that will be the denominator of the fraction. The numerator is one.

A negative exponent is the reciprocal of the corresponding positive exponent. 102 = 100 10-2 = 1/100

Negative x negative x negative = negative.

negative 8 would be the base and the 15 would be the exponent

Because a number to the exponent 0 = 1 and any lesser exponent decreases the value.

A fraction

Say it with a lot of sarcasm.

This is a procedure used to help people who are new to negative exponents. A negative exponent, when moved to the other side of the fraction, becomes a positive exponent and beginners are more comfortable with working with positive fractions.

it would be a negative multiplied by a negative and your answer should end up positive.

The exponent will be negative when the absolute value of the number is between 0 and 1. For example, 1X10-1 is 0.1.

A negative exponent indicates division by the base. For example: 8 -3 = 1/(83)= 1/672

A number with a negative exponent should be treated as the reciprocal of that same number with the analogous positive exponent. For example, 42 = 16, but 4-2 = 1/42 = 1/16.

Yes.

When you subtract it from a bigger exponent of another number by dividing two numbers with exponents.

An expression is non polynomial if it has : negative exponent fractional exponent variable exponent in the radicand

Its exponent: which is -6.

-25

It is the same as 1/34 . We move an exponent to the denominator and we change the exponent from positive to negative. Now 34 is 81 so the answer is 1/81 meters.If the exponent in the denominator is negative, we can move it up to the numerator and change it to a positive.

It is: -6-1 = -1/6
