    For numbers that have negative exponents, you can switch them to the numerator (or denominator), then change the negative exponent to a positive. Here is an example: |dw:1359143076381:dw|

    Perhaps some practice will help clarify any confusion? When you have a number raised to a negative power, that just means it's the inverse of the same number with a positive power. |dw:1359143938001:dw|
