    If your question is: \(-2^{-2}\) the you got: \[\large \implies -2^{-2} = -\frac{1}{2^2} \implies \frac{-1}{4}\]

    And if your question is : \((-2)^{-2}\) then you will get: \[\large (-2)^{-2} = \frac{1}{2^2} \implies \frac{1}{4}\]

    Remember anything raised to the power 0 is 1.. except the base must not be 0.. So: \[\large -2^0 \implies -(1) \implies -1\] And: \[\large (-2)^0 \implies 1\]
