That is the definition of negative powers.

5-2 is 0.04

2

no, the answer is : 2 ^ -5 = 0.3125

5^-2

-32

-5

2-5 = -32

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

(-5)-2 = 1/(-5)2 = 1/25 = 0.04

30

16 -2-4 = 0.0625

it is positive =1/25

32

2-5 = 1/25 = 1/32 = 0.03125

Yes. 10^-2 = 1/(10^2) = 1/100, 10^-5 = 1/100000

whenever you have a number to a negative power that number is the reciprocal...-5-2 = 1/-52your answer is 1/25

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

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

25 If you mean 5-1 the answer is .2 or 1/5

(5-2) x (52) = (1/52) x (52) = 52/52 = 1

1/2, or .5When you raise a number to a negative power, you are dividing one by that number to the positive version of that power. For example, 5^-6 = 1/(5^6).So, 2^-1 = 1/(2^1), or 1/2, which = .5

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