## anonymous one year ago Simplify using positive exponents. m^3n^–6p^0

• This Question is Closed
1. anonymous

$m^3n ^{-6}p^0$ is the proper display.

2. anonymous

does it help to know that $$p^0=1$$ ?

3. Astrophysics

and $x^{-1} = \frac{ 1 }{ x }$

4. anonymous

and that $n^{-6}=\frac{1}{n^6}$

5. anonymous

so$\frac{ 2m^3 }{ ?n^6 }$ would be correct to assume?

6. Astrophysics

Where'd you get the 2

7. anonymous

ignore the question mark on the bottom

8. anonymous

where did the 2 come from?

9. anonymous

it was a typo it was supposed to be 1

10. anonymous

usually you don't write the 1 either, just go with $\frac{m^3}{n^6}$

11. anonymous

So would that be the answer? or is there more to it?
