Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3remember this exponent rule \[\huge\rm x^{m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^{m} }\] if there is negative exponent then you should `flip` the fraction.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know it was just a typeo :p \[x^{m}=\frac{1}{x^{\color{red}m}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3like in this example x^{m} is same as x^{m} over one \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^{m }}{ 1 }= \frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\] in other words reciprocal of x^{m}/1 is 1/x^m

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.32/3 when you flip it you will get 3/2 right ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if I flip, I will get \[\frac{ 16 }{ 1 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that's exactly how u should flip the fraction but i meant to say that c should be negative so that's 4^c is equal to 1 over 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\huge\rm \frac{ 4^{c} }{ 1 }= \frac{ 1 }{ 16 }\] \[\frac{ 4^{c} }{ 1 } = ?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And how do i figure out 4^c?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3let's do the other way \[\huge\rm 4^c =16\] reciprocal of 1/6 is 16 now 4 to the what power = 16?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.34^3 is same 4 times 4 times 4 which is not equalto 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3actually my bad first we write it in exponent form and then we should flip it i'm sorry \[\huge\rm 4^c=\frac{ 1 }{ 4^2 }\] now flip the fraction when you do that sign would change

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\huge\rm 4^c= 4^{2}\] now cancel out 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3now just to check ur answer substitute c for 2 \[\frac{ 4^{2} }{ 1 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 16 }\]both sides re equal good to go! remember there is negative exponent so don't forget to flip the fraction :P
