Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Negative exponents mean that you have to move the value to the numerator. Move the 2 and the x^3 up, and you get 2x^3/y^5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3^ means the next number is an exponent, btw. So 2x^3 is Two x cubed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3and y^5 is y to the power of 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Okay, so the original equation is 1/2^2 x^3 y^5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3If there's a negative exponent in the denominator, you want to move it to the numerator, and change the exponent to positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So, if you move the 2^2 to the top, you multiply it by the numerator, which is 1. You're left with 2. Pretty simple, 2 times 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Right now, the equation is 2/x^3 y^5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now, you want to move the x^3 up to the numerator. You do the same thing. Multiply the numerator by x^3, and you get 2x^3 / y^5 The y^5 stays on the bottom. That's fine.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the choices are: 16, 4, 1/32, or 16

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Um, none of those would work. You can't solve it with no equal sign. Was that the whole equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3We don't have any information on what to plug in for x or y, so it can't be solved. Are you 100% sure that's all the information you've been given, that picture and the answer choices?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So, let's plug them in. It's 2(2)^3 over (4)^5. The exponent for x is ONLY for x. Don't multiply x by two and then do the exponent, that's wrong. So, 2^3 is 8, times 2 is 16. 4^5 is 1024 (yes, big number, don't freak out.) You're left with 16/1024, or 1/64.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but thats not one of the choices. you mean 1/32?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i mean 1/32? @whovianchick

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like i said the choices are the choices are: 16, 4, 1/32, or 16 @whovianchick

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Wait no that's wrong, I did something wrong. When you plug it in, you get 1/32
