negative 4 with negative 3 as an exponent

the exponent is a negative

A number to a negative exponent is the inverse of the number to the positive exponent. That is, x-a = 1/xa

Every number can be expressed using an exponent. You select a base, b, which should be a positive real number. Suppose the number is x.If this number is negative, then its exponent form will have a negative sign before it.The absolute value of the number is converted to the exponent form by solving x = b^y where y is the exponent. However, you need to know about logarithms before you can do that (and this question suggests that you have not yet progressed to that level of mathematics).

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

One billionth = 10-9

When you have a negative exponent (for example 3^-3) you could make the recipricol of the number. So, this would be 1/3^3. Then all that you would have to do is solve for the exponent ( so in this case the answer would be 1/27)

A negative exponent is the reciprocal of the corresponding positive exponent. 102 = 100 10-2 = 1/100

A negative exponent implies a reciprocal.Thus x^-a = 1/x^a or, equivalently, (1/x)^a

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.
