Hm. Depends on what you mean by simplifying, but I assume you want it as a fraction.

i'm still looking..im not sure if it has to be in a fraction

Sounds good. Let me know when you find out :)

sorry i still dont understand..

the example ur typing is giving me math processing error..i cant see what ur typing for some reason

Yeah, the first one was a mistake. You should see the second post I followed it with.

no it did the same thing

ok i'm tryng to understand..im still not gettin it

So for example:
2^-3 = 1 / 2^3
3^-8 = 1 / 3^8
215^-15 = 1 / 215^15
3^-35 = 1 / 3^35

this is harder than i thought...is the example the answer broken down?

Hm. What do you mean?

Sorry, 1 / 8^2 = 1 / 64

ok i think i got it..it turns to a fraction?

Exactly.

ok so lemme make sure i got this..for the next problem its..2^-5 would it turn into 1/32?

Right! :)

ok so i got that part..how do i change it back from the fraction?

The only way to take it back out of fraction form is to raise it to -1.
So 1 / 64 = 64^-1.

Ok, so 4^4 is the same as 4 x 4 x 4 x 4, right?

yep i got that

Right, so what you have is:
(4 x 4 x 4 x 4) / 4
Now, let's back up for a second. What is 4 x 4 / 4?

256

Not quite. 4 x 4 is 16. If you divide 16 / 4, what do you get?

4?

Exactly. So dividing by 4 cancels one of the multiplications.

64?

Exactly :)

ok thanks..i think i got this one too..i have more..but i wanna finish these problems first

Cool.
