Troubling exponents - what do you think

Postby wp_913 on Tue Jun 18, 2013 1:09 am

Hi

Here is a exponent problem I'm struggling with, what do you think

-(-c^4)^(-3) = -(-c^-12) = -(-1/c^12) = 1/c^12

My calculator shows this as -1/c^12

Did I miss something

Your written steps are correct. You just used incorrect key sequencing on your calculator.
