It is always negative when raised to an odd power and always positive when raised to an even power -2 to the third power = -2 x -2 x -2 = -8 -2 to the fourth power = -2 x -2 x -2 x -2 = +16

10-7 is smaller than 10-2.

yes, but the answer will remain negative. for example, (-2)3 is -8 in order to make a negative number positive, it must be raised to an even power, for example (-2)2 = 4

30

You should try it. For example, (-2)3 = (-2)(-2)(-2) = -8.

-120= 1 because 1.) any negative number raised to an even power will result in a positive numberand 2.) 1 raised to any power is 1.

No, or more accurately "not necessarily".A negative to any even power is positive. -2, -4, -6 etc. are even, so a negative number raised to any of those powers will be positive.However, a negative number raised to an odd negative power (-1, -3, -5 etc.) will be negative.

144-1/2 = 0.00347

(-3)^2 =9 but -3^2 = -9

125. Five to the power of two is 25 and 25 times five is 125!

A base raised to a negative power is equal to 1 divided by that base raised to a positive exponent. So 16 raised to (-3/2) is equal to 1/ (16 raised 3/2), or 1/64.

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