**Reiny**, Friday, September 4, 2009 at 7:37amIf you mean

(-x)^{3 = -x3 yes, that is always true As a matter of fact, it is true for all odd exponents of n for (-x)n = -xn and false for all even numbers of n. e.g. (-3)^3 = (-3)(-3)(-3) = -27 -3^3 = -(3)^3 = -(3)(3)(3) = -27 but (-3)^4 = (-3)(-3)(-3)(-3) = +81 and -3^4 = -(3)(3)(3)(3) = -81 } - mathematics -
**Reiny**, Friday, September 4, 2009 at 8:36amLet's try that again

If you mean

(-x)^{3}= -x^{3}

yes, that is always true

As a matter of fact, it is true for all odd exponents of n for

(-x)n = -xn

and false for all even numbers of n.

e.g. (-3)^3 = (-3)(-3)(-3) = -27

-3^3 = -(3)^3 = -(3)(3)(3) = -27

but

(-3)^4 = (-3)(-3)(-3)(-3) = +81

and -3^4 = -(3)(3)(3)(3) = -81
