## anonymous one year ago What is 6 to the -7th power? I'm confused on how to find the answer.

1. anonymous

Rule: $a^{-n}=\frac{ 1 }{ a^n }$

2. anonymous

so by extension, $6^{-7}=\frac{ 1 }{ 6^7 }$

@peachpi how would i get that in a number form?

4. millsemily

3.572245...

5. millsemily

Is that one of your choices?

6. millsemily

Let me know if it's right! :)

The answer is a fraction. Use a calculator to find 6^7.
