Could you help?? Please thanks teshaAnswer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First we handle the range of exponents thus: 5^3=5*5*5=125 5^2=5*5=25 5^1=5 5^0=1 *by definition) 5^(-1)=1/5 5^(-2)=1/5*5=1/25 5^(-3)=1/5*5*5=1/125 Also: 1/5^(-2)=1/(1/25)=1*25/1=25 or 5^2 5^5/5^(-2)=5^5*5^2=5^7 Hope this helps.
