Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And to change the sign of an exponent, take the reciprocal of the power. For example,\[3^{2} = \frac{ 1 }{ 3^2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Terrific. So\[5^3 \times 5^{1} = 5^2\]See how it works. Easy as pie.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, I would leave the 3rd box the way it is and simplify the 4th box. Look at my 4th example above. What happens when you take the reciprocal of a power?
