Q: What is 5 over 8 to the negative 2nd power?

Write your answer...

It is equivalent to 1 over 5 to the power of 5, or 1 over 3125.

That is the definition of negative powers.

it is a positive fraction 5^-2=1 over 5^2 answer is 1 over 25

5-2 = 1/52 = 1/25 = 0.04

32

negative 0.0016

1 over 5^2. which is 1/25

(-5)2 = 25. This is because multiplying two negative numbers together always leads to a positive number. Think about it like taking a negative amount of negative numbers, which switches them over to positive numbers. -52 = -25, because you are not multiplying negative 5 by negative 5, you are multiplying 5 by 5, and then multiplying that value by negative 1.

It is 1 over that number to the same power, but positive. So 4^-5=1/4^5

They are not! 5-3, for example is not 1/52 nor (1/5)2.

In increasing order, they arenegative 31 over 6negative square root 26negative 5negative 5 over 6

(7/5)^2 = 49/25

0.00001 or 1 over 100,000

(-2/5)3 = - 0.064 -2 / (53) = - 0.016

Negative 5 to the second power would be -5 times -5 which would be 25.

4fg^-5 / 5h^-3 = 4fh^3/5g^5

It is -1/5

10 to the negative 5th power (10-5) equals 0.00001

25

It's the inverse of the number raised to the power. 2 to the power of negative 3 would be 1/8th.1 over 25Improvement(shininggallade):When raising a whole number to a negative power, simply raise 5 to the second power, which is 25, and put a 1 over it. 5^-2=1/25 A more technical definition is to reverse the numerator and denominator and then apply the power. Remember 5 is the same as 5/1, so (5^-2)/1=1/(5^2)=1/25(The symbol for "to the power of" is "^" just to let you know.)

Five to the negative third power = 0.008

Seven to the negative 5th power is 0.00005949901

The two negatives cancel out so a negative over a negative is positive. So, -4/-5 = 4/5 or 0.8

If you mean 5 to the power of -1 then it is 1/5

negative 3 over 5 or _0.6
