Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large\rm (10)^{1}\]Is this the first one? :o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Recall that for negative exponents we have this going on\[\large\rm x^{a}=\frac{1}{x^a}\]And,\[\large\rm \frac{1}{x^{b}}=x^b\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if it is then 10 won't be the answer it would be 1/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The equation tool. It takes a little getting used to though :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 1 }{ c } ^{5}\] well then this would be question #2 but the exponet on the bottom not the top lol i attempted to use the equation tool

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So use the second rule I posted :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Apply the exponent rule to your 10, flip it in order to change the exponent to positive.\[\large\rm (10)^{1}=\frac{1}{(10)^{+1}}=\frac{1}{10}\]You were fine with the first one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1To get rid of the negative on the exponent, flip the c up to the numerator,\[\large\rm \frac{1}{c^{5}}=\frac{c^{+5}}{1}=c^5\]Be careful with this though, I'm NOT exchanging the c and 1. I'm only moving the c. Example, if this had been your problem:\[\large\rm \frac{2}{c^{5}}\]It would become\[\large\rm \frac{2c^{+5}}{1}=2c^5\]You're just flipping the c up to the numerator, and the exponent changes to positive. All that's left in the bottom is a 1 pretty much.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So it would be \[c^{5}\] not \[c^{5}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1442382222840:dwApply your exponent rule to each of these BEFORE you plug the values in.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The x will come up top, the 3 will become positive, the y will go down below, the 5 will become positive, ya?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I would recommend that you put brackets around your numbers when you plug them in, just to remind yourself that the exponent is being applied to the `negative` sign as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Would it end up being 128?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1442382496242:dwHmm the bottom number is going to be a lot larger than the top, not sure how you ended up with a big number like that. Should be something really small.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Im not good at this at all. . sorry :/ \[\frac{ 10 }{ 3 }\] then?
