## anonymous one year ago Help! Write 5^0 X 5^-12 using positive exponents.

1. anonymous

$5^{0} \times 5^{-12}$

2. Nnesha

exponent rule when we multiply same bases we should add their exponents $\huge\rm x^m \times x^n=x^{m+n}$ and when we divide same bases we should subtract their exponents $\huge\rm \frac{ x^m }{ x^n }=x^{m-n}$

3. anonymous

So would it be $5^{-12}$ ? Cause i need a positive exponent

4. anonymous

or use positive exponents

5. Nnesha

yes right next step $\huge\rm x^{-m}=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }$

6. Nnesha

you just to know those exponent rules that's it :=)

7. anonymous

okay so the final would be $\left(\begin{matrix}1 \\ 5^{12}\end{matrix}\right)$ ?

8. Nnesha

yes right!

9. anonymous

Okay thanks for the third time lol :)
