Using the definition, 10(to the negative sixth power) = 1/10to the six power and x(negative2) = 1/xto the second power

The definition also shows that 1/10to the six power = 10to the negative 6th power and 1/xto the 2nd power = x(negative2)

I think thats the directions :S

1. 3to the negative1st power

:? Sorry, I'll retype the directions if you get confused, I, aswell, am confused. :/

Please help,

Appriciated.
