Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Alright, the problem is the following:\[\frac{1}{(2^{2} + 5^{1})^2}\] when you have a negative power, you can make it positive by simply changing its position ^_^. So now you have : \[\frac{1}{\frac{1}{2^2} + \frac{1}{5}}= \frac{1}{\frac{1}{4} + \frac{1}{5}}\] Now compute the denominator, then work it out as a simple fraction : \[=\frac{1}{\frac{5+4}{20}}=\frac{1}{\frac{9}{20}} = \frac{20}{9}\] I hope this made the concept of the idea clearer ^_^
