HOw to solve -100^(-3/2) ????????? Please help!
okay cool . But how did you get to there?
Please show the steps :) thank yiou!!!
You can break it into steps with parenthesis: \[-(((100^{1/2})^{3})^{-1}\] Evaluate starting at the innermost parenthesis: \[-(((10})^{3})^{-1}\] \[-(1000}^{-1}\] -(1/1000)
why is it to the exponent 3 and the -1, and not just -3??
\[-100{}^{\wedge}(-3/2)=-\frac{1}{\sqrt[2]{100^3}}=-\frac{1}{\sqrt[2]{1000000}}=-\frac{1}{1000} \]
You can do the exponents in any order like (like robtobey).
