Negative exponents are a way of writing powers of fractions or decimals without using a fraction or decimal. You can always get rid of this negative in the exponent by taking the reciprocal and raising it to the positive.
A negative exponent just means that the base is on the wrong side of the fraction line so you need to flip the base to the other side.
How to get rid of negative exponents in a fraction. A negative fractional exponent works just like an ordinary negative exponent. Rule for negative exponents negative exponents translate to fractions. For example 4 3 1 4 3 1 64.
First we switch the numerator and the denominator of the base number and then we apply the positive exponent. A positive exponent tells us how many times to multiply a base. It means you get rid of negative exponents by changing its position in a fraction.
The more negative the exponent the smaller the value. A negative exponent tells you to divide the number 1 by the base number. To make a problem.
In a fractional exponent think of the numerator as an exponent and the denominator as the root another rule for fractional exponents. Learn how to rewrite expressions with negative exponents as fractions with positive exponents. Recall that negative exponents indicates that we need to move the base to the other side of the fraction line.
You use negative exponents as a way to combine.
