Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is not multiplication, this is an exponent. With negative exponents you put the 8^2 under 1 like this: 1/8^2 the answer is NOT 64 the answer is 1/64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Im afraid Twistnflip is correct. 8^2 = 1/ 8 * 8 = 1/8^2 = 1/64
