 Question 157295: I have a difficulty with my daughter's algebra book. She has been taught something about apply exponents to negative numbers I am not so sure about. specifically she was taught that -8^2=-64, in effect that the formula is equivalent to -(8)^2, whereas I thought it was the equivalent to (-8)^2 and therefore would be +64. We checked her textbook and it clearly supports what she was taught, but clearly contradicts what I do in engineering. Can someone either correct me or point me to a correct resource?
