3^-2 (a^4)

 

It's meticulous to solve a negative exponent, so find the reciprocal of 3^-2 and change the -2 to a positive 2.

 

1 / 3^2

 

There! Now add the a^4 back...

 

1(a^4) / 3^2

 

a^4 / 3^2

 

First, solve 3^2...

 

3 * 3 = 9

 

Put that in...

 

a^4 / 9

 

And that's it!

 

3^-2 * a^4 = a^4 / 9 = 1/9a^4

\({3}^{-2}\times{a}^{4}\)

 

\(\frac{1}{{3}^{2}}\times{a}^{4}\)

 

\(\frac{1}{9}\times{a}^{4}\)

 

\(\frac{1}{9}{a}^{4}\)

 

\(\frac{{a}^{4}}{9}\)
