 Question 232744: Negative 8 in parentheses with negative 2 exponent outside parentheses, how do you solve it? The original problem was 2 to negative 3rd power in parentheses with negative 2 power (exponent) outside parentheses, equals 2 to negative 3 power with negative 2 power in parentheses. I calculated that the first part of the equation was the negative 8 in parentheses with negative 2 exponent outside parentheses. Did I do that right? I came up with 64 but I think this is wrong. This is terrible. I'm trying to tutor pre algebra to 8th graders and look at me! Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30983)
