## anonymous one year ago What value of p solves the equation?

1. anonymous

2. Nnesha

exponent rule for negative exponent $\huge\rm x^{-m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }$ use that

3. anonymous

thats a little confusing

4. Nnesha

just flip the fraction to convert negative to positive exponent x^{-m} is same $\huge\rm \frac{ x^{-m} }{ 1 } = \frac{ 1 }{ x^m }$ m is an exponent

5. anonymous

so, what would be the answer? i need help. i've gotten the wrong ones so far..

6. Nnesha

what did you get ?

7. Nnesha

$\huge\rm p^{-5}= ???$

8. anonymous

i forgot, i erased it..

9. Nnesha

oky read what i said above and try to solve again.

10. anonymous

its still confusing

11. Nnesha

just flip the fraction. that's it when you do that negative sign will turns to positive

12. Nnesha

x^{-m} is same $\huge\rm \frac{ x^{-m} }{ 1 } = \frac{ 1 }{ x^m }$ m is an exponent i gave you 'n example.

13. Nnesha

$\huge\rm \frac{ p^{-5} }{ 1} = ????$
