y^-5y = y5y= y^6 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
not quite
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh pls help me understand more
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
see how i said that x^-y = 1/x^y ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
alll you need to do is put the number in the denominator and get rid of the negative sign in front of the exponent
anonymous
  • anonymous
y^y/5 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
a litter closer
anonymous
  • anonymous
5/y^y?
anonymous
  • anonymous
do I add the 'y's?
anonymous
  • anonymous
nope
anonymous
  • anonymous
you ignore the exponents for now and concentrate on only the negative sign
anonymous
  • anonymous
for example, 4^-1 = 1/4^1 = 1/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
so is it 1/y^5y?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
you have the right answer
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhhh tytytyty :)

just for another example for when you see fractions with negative exponents. x^-x/y^-y = y^y/x^x
anonymous
  • anonymous
just reverse the numerator and denominator and remove the negative sign from the exponent
