You can have negative exponents anywhere. When they are in the denominator, they are equivalent to positive exponents in the numerator of a fraction.

by doing reciprocal

They are the reciprocals of the positive exponents. Thus, x-a = 1/xa

Positive exponents: an = a*a*a*...*a where there are n (>0) lots of a. Negative exponents: a-n = 1/(a*a*a*...*a) where there are n (>0) lots of a.

positive

It is in the simplest form when all exponents are positive.

A negative exponent becomes positive in the reciprocal. So if you have a number a^x where x is negative, then, a^x = 1/(a^-x) and, since x is negative, -x is positive.

They can be written as reciprocals with positive exponents. For example, 5-7 = (1/5)7

Write in positive exponents: (3x ) / y =

Exactly that ... negative exponents. For example: 1000 = 103 That is a positive exponent. .001 = 10-3 That is a negative exponent. For positive exponents, you move the decimal place that many positions to the right, adding zeros as needed. For negative exponents, you move the decimal place that many positions to the LEFT, adding zeros as needed. And, the special case is this: 100 = 1.

All the powers and exponents of 1 are 1.The powers and exponents of any of the other numbers up to 10 are equivalent to the all the positive numbers - rational and irrational.

The numbers called that are used in exponents can be called as a power of a number. The power or exponent can be positive , negative , zero .

you make it into a fraction by puting whatever the negative exponent is attach to an pu that on the botttom of the fraction and leave a one on top

When it is anything above zero. Negative exponents are below zero and zero is nuetral.

Any number above 0. Any number below 0 is negative.

Exponents is exponents

Move the decimal to the right for positive exponents, and the left for negative exponents. 1.23 x 10^3 = 1230 1.23 x 10^-3 = 0.00123
