Negative Exponent Formula
The following formula can be used to calculate the value of a number raised to a negative exponent.
X^-Y = 1/X^Y
- Where X is the number being raised to
- Y is the exponent
Negative Exponent Definition
A negative exponent is equal to the inverse of the function raised to the positive value of that exponent.
The following examples show the process of calculating a negative exponent value.
- 5 ^ -2 = 1/5^2 = 1/25
- 4^ -3 = 1/4^3 = 1/48
- 10^-3 = 1/10^3 = 1/1000
- 2 ^ -5 = 1/2^5 = 1/32
- 1 ^ -1 = 1/1^1 = 1
A negative exponent is equal to the inverse of the positive of that exponent.
