    it can be seen as 1^-2/2^-2. the negative switches if it is on top or bottom. so it is also 2^2/1

    david is right the negative sign in the exponent means you will take the inverse then after that you take 2^2

    \[\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)^{-2}=\left(\frac{2}{1}\right)^2=2^2=4\]

    I though that it will go like this : 1^-2/2^-2 =(1/1)/(1/4) OH! IT'S 4! haha,thanks once again! :)
