10-1 = 1/10 A number raised to a negative power is equal to the reciprocal of the number raised to the power. So a-b = (1/a)b = 1/ab

A negative power can change "sides of the fraction" to become a positive power. For example: 5-2 = 1/52 = 1/25 In this case: 10-4 = 1/104 = 1/10,000 = 0.0001

0.00001 or 1 over 100,000

0.2 or 1/5 :D

It is: 25

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

1 * 10-5 = 0.000001

1/100000 or 1*10-5 = 0.00001

10-1 = 1/10 A number raised to a negative power is equal to the reciprocal of the number raised to the power. So a-b = (1/a)b = 1/ab

For a negative power of -k, the equivalent decimal is the decimal point followed by (k-1) zeros followed by 1.Thus 10^-5 = 0.00001

It is: (8*10^-3) divided by (5*10^-5) = 160

A negative power can change "sides of the fraction" to become a positive power. For example: 5-2 = 1/52 = 1/25 In this case: 10-4 = 1/104 = 1/10,000 = 0.0001

For example, 10 to the power -5 means the same as 1 divided by (10 to the power 5). In general, you can interpret negative exponents this way, with reciprocals.

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

It is -1/5

0.00001 or 1 over 100,000

If you mean 5 to the power of -1 then it is 1/5
