1. Write each of the following exponential expressions without the use of exponents

Note, GM.....

 

a-b  =  1 / ab

 

So

2-3 =  1/23  = 1/8

 

Can you figure out the next three based on this???......post your answers and I'll check them

 

[ Also....    if a is not 0.....   a0  =  1 ]

 

The last  one is 23  =  2 * 22   =  2 * 4 = 8

Alright then solving exponents.

 

2-3 = 1/23 = 1/8

2-2 = 1/22 = 1/4

2-1 = 1/21 = 1/2

20 = 1

21 = 2

22 = 4

23 = 8

 

It looks like there is a pattern in this problem. Every time it is multiplied by 2 the exponent goes up by one and give a new answer. Is that right?

If I'm reading this right, you gotta just solve each equation indiviudualy. And when you have negative exponents, you take the inverse of the number, then the exponent turns positve. So for example, 2-1 = 1/2
