    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?

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