I was absent. Can anyone help? Write each expression as a positive exponent 1. 2 to the -4th power = ? 2. 4 to the -3rd power = ? 3. A to the -4th power = ? 4. G to the -7th power = ? Write each fraction as an expression using a negative exponent OTHER THAN -1 5. 1/3 to the 4th power = ? 6. 1/m to the 5th power = ? 7. 1/16 (NOT -1) = ? 8. 1/49 (NOT -1) = ? Thanks for reading any help is appreciated and YES I Will post more today so stay tuned in to help me because I honestly am confusled. :)

    Well, when an exponent is negative you put it as a fraction.

    right but when you put it as the fraction the exponent becomes positive.

    Correct, that would be the answer for 2. It's really simple, actually.

    Haha, thank you. For three and four, I guess it's the same thing except the letter instead of the number.

    Right, but remember it has to be negative and two of the same numbers.

    Lets try -4 * -4 that also equals 16.
