### What is the rule for negative exponents?

A

**negative exponent**helps to show that a base is on the denominator side of the fraction line. In other words, the**negative exponent rule**tells us that a number with a**negative exponent**should be put to the denominator, and vice versa. For example, when you see x^-3, it actually stands for 1/x^3.### How do you get rid of a negative exponent in a fraction?

### How do you get rid of a negative exponent 1?

Zero

**power**rule: Any base raised to the**power**of zero becomes**one**.**Negative exponent**rule: To change a**negative exponent**to a positive**one**, flip it into a reciprocal.### What is 10 to the negative power of 2?

The absolute value of the

**exponent**of the number –**2**,**2**, denotes how many times to multiply the base (**10**), and the**power’s minus**sign stands for reciprocal.**10**to the**power**of**minus 2**=**10**^{–}**= 1 / 100.**^{2}### What is anything to the power of negative 1?

The

**negative power**will become just “**1**” once I move the base to the other side of the fraction line.**Anything to the power 1**is just itself, so I’ll be able to drop this**power**once I’ve moved the base.### What is 0 to the power of negative 1?

Anything, even a

**negative**number or an imaginary number, raised to the zero**power**, is equal to**1**.### How do you solve 10 to the negative power?

### What is the number of 0?

**0**(

**zero**) is a

**number**, and the numerical digit used to represent that

**number**in numerals. It fulfills a central role in mathematics as the additive identity of the integers, real

**numbers**, and many other algebraic structures.
