Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wouldn't you multiply the number by itself the number of times of the exponent to clear it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you want to remove the exponent then yes, that is what you would do

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think so, but this stuff confuses me so much that I just don't know. The question in my text is written just as I wrote it here, so I believe it's mainly just asking for simplification, not solving. So, I'm guessing that, no, I don't need to clear the exponents. What is the rule I should remember?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The rule that you should remember in such a question where you are required to give your answer in positive exponent is that , if for exampe you are given 1^3 , that equals 1 / 1^3 .It's as simple as that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When you divide it by 1 , the sign of your exponent changes. When you divided 1^3 by 1 , the sign of your exponent changed , hence your answer would be 1 / 1^3
