No Actually... x^(-y) is equal to 1/x^y. 2^(-2) is equal to 1/2^2 which is equal to 1/4 or 0.25.

yes ma'am ADDED: The above is wrong. 2^-2 means 1/2^2 or 1/4 -2^2 can equal - 4

-24 is the same as saying -2 times itself 4 times, or (-2)*(-2)*(-2)*(-2). This can be simplified to 4*4, which is equal to 16.An exception is if it is -(24). Because the negative sign is "outside" the influence of the power, you are now finding 2*2*2*2 and making it negative, so the answer would be negative16.

Yes. (1/2)-2 = (2-1)-2 = 2(-1)*(-2) = 22 = 4

negative 2

16

4^(-3) = 1/4^3 or 1/64

the answer is -4

It can equal just about anything except 0. For example: (-2)-2 = 1/4 (-2)-3 = -1/8 (-0.5)-2 = 4 (-0.5)-3 = -8 :

They are equal 2^4 and 4^2 both equal 16.

2-4 = 16

A negative + a negative + a negative equals a negative. Adding a negative number is equal to subtracting a positive number. For example: -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-2)-2-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-4)-2 -2+(-2)+(-2) = (-6)

A Negative plus a positive = a negative because negative and a positive cannot work together Negative + Negative= Positive Positive + Positive = Positive when your dealing with numbers such as : -2 + 2 would equal a negative 4 -2 +-2 would equal a positive 4

Answer #1:Negative one-half to the negative 4th power, ie -((1/2)-4) equals -16Answer #2:Negative one-half to the negative 4th power, ie (-1/2)-4 equals +16

2-4 = 0.0625

Whenever you square a negative number it becomes positive. so -4^2 is -4*-4=16. Be careful though. (-4)^2 is not the same as -(4^2).
