    when we multiply same bases we should `ADD` their exponents \[\huge\rm x^m \times x^n=x^{m+n}\]

    yes right now flip the fraction to make the positive exponent \[\huge\rm x^{-m} =\frac{ 1 }{ x^m }\]

    alright here is an example \[\huge\rm \frac{ x^{-m} }{ 1 }=\frac{ 1 }{ x^m}\] flip the fraction and change the sign of the exponent
