when you have a negative exponent, it means that, the base of that exponent is on the other side of the fraction with the same exponent but positive. so $$\large x^{-2}$$ means $$\huge \frac{1}{x^{2}}$$ and $$\huge \frac{1}{x^{-2}}=x^2$$ do you understand this?

not really

3. anonymous

wait i think i get it, so im just going to reveres x^2 into x^-2

4. sasogeek

when you want to reverse x^2, it becomes 1/x^-2

5. sasogeek

it's not called "reverse" anyway but i hope u get it now :)

6. anonymous

i do thank you

7. sasogeek

can you tell what the answer to your question is now?
