    you can write it as (5/a)^2 inverting values will change the sign from negative to positive.. so it will be, 25/a^2

    I told earlier that inverting values will result in sign change.. look after inverting i have changed power sign from negative to positive..

    I understand that, but I thought you only do that for the reciprocal?

    I did it to make it easier to evaluate.. positive powers are easy to evaluate..
