    the negative exponent tells us to take the reciprocal of the base to make the exponent positive so \[\Large -(10)^{-2} = -\frac{1}{10^2}\]

    Order 34*10^2, 1.2*10^7, 8.11*10^-3, and 435 from least to greatest.

    I would use a calculator to evaluate 34*10^2, 1.2*10^7, and 8.11*10^-3 get everything to decimal form and then you'll be able to compare

    i think its 8.11*10^-3, 34*10^2, 435,1.2*10^7

    simplify the expression (7.26)^-9*(7.26)^10 wouldn't this be -7.26^19?

    I'm getting `(7.26)^(-9)*(7.26)^10 = 7.26` hmm I'm curious how you got your answer

    \[\Large (7.26)^{-9}*(7.26)^{10} = 7.26^{-9+10} = 7.26^1 = 7.26\]
