    Sorry for the delay, my paid gig had some one show up. You've seen: \[\log_{a} b=x \rightarrow a^{x}=b\]

    No. In exponential form \[3^y=5\] so the 3 is the base

    If we had to write \[3^2=9\] in log form, we'd write \[\log_{3}9=2 \]

    Right, so try writing the a, the 7 and the -2 in exponential form

    a is the base -2 is the exponent and the 7 is the "answer"

  29. TransendentialPI

    \[a^{-2}=7\]
