5x^3

Is the 3 postive or negitive?

It is positive. A number that is positive doesn't necessarily have to have a positive sign infront of it. For ex. if you check the weather it won't say +3, it will just say 3. You know if a number is negative; it always has the negative sign infront of it.

I understand that, But all there was, was a ^ that means to the power of three, So you cant just have 5 times a exponet of a 3 unless the number is 0.
