(1/2)-5 = 32
That number becomes an exponent. For example, 5 to the -2 power is 1/25
A negative exponent of a number is the same as the reciprocal of that same number to the equivalent positive exponent.EXAMPLE : 2-3 = 1/23When multiplying powers of the same base the rule is, addthe exponents.So, if the initial exponent is negative then the number has to be multiplied by a power of that number with an equivalent positive exponent greater than the negative exponent.EXAMPLE : 2-3 x 25 = 2(-3+5) = 22 (As 5 > l3l then the resultant exponent is positive)
A negative exponent is the reciprocal of the corresponding positive exponent. 102 = 100 10-2 = 1/100
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 same as 1/(the positive exponent). For example, 2^3 is (2*2*2) = 8. 2^(-3) is 1/(2*2*2) = 1/8. So, just calculate the positive exponent version, and put it under 1.
When you have a negative exponent on, say, 4, it will be written 4^-2 You basically take the reciprocal of it and change the exponent to a positive one. 4^-2 would be 1/4^2
Basically do the same thing you would with a positive exponent. However, the difference with negatives is that it will be a fraction with 1 over whatever the exponent comes out to. The negative just tells you to flip the position of the exponent from the numerator to the denominator. For example if you have 5-2, it would become 1/52, which would then become 1/25. Also, if you have a negative exponent in your denominator, you would flip it up to the numerator. For example if you have 1/5-2, it would become 52, which would then be 25.
5-1 = 1/5
5(10^(-2)) = 5 / (10^2) = 5/100 = .05 because multiplying any number by a negative exponent (such as 10^(-2)) is the same as dividing by its reciprocal (10^2)
negative 4 with negative 3 as an exponent
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
Polynomials cannot have negative exponent.
the exponent is a negative
In the number 25 the exponent is 5. Whereas, 2 is the base.
I assume you mean "negative integer exponents".It means that: * It is an exponent * It is an integer (whole number) * It is negative (less than zero, i.e., with a minus sign) A negative exponent is defined as the reciprocal of the positive exponent. For example, 10 to the power -5 is the same as 1 / (10 to the power 5).
There is a good answer. You will need: - a square root - a decimal point - a negative sign - an exponent (x to the power of y)
52 (5 is the base and 2 is the exponent or power). The 2 says to multiply 5 by itself 2 times. 5*5 = 25
Invert the function.1/x = x-1x5 = 1/x-51/sqrt(x) = 1/x1/2 = x-1/2
A negative exponent requires that you place the number in a fraction, for example, 5-2 = 1/5. 6-2=1/6 so your equation should be, 52 X 1/5, or 25 X1/5 which is 5.
It's a number up and just to the right of the bigger first number. If its. 3 2 Then you multiply it like 2 times 2times 2 With negative exponent you switch it from negative to positive every other one starting with negative. We do this because a negative and a negative multiplied together equal a positive and a positive times a negative is negative. -123771
-6^-2 = 1/36
A number to a negative exponent is the inverse of the number to the positive exponent. That is, x-a = 1/xa
