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

(7/5)^2 = 49/25

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.

(-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.

0.00001 or 1 over 100,000
