can someone please tell me if this is right or this simple really? the question is to express using a positive exponent. m^-6 so do you really just change it to m^6 so that it is positive? Or how do you go about that?

m^-6 = 1/m^6

is how you would do it, without changing the value of the number represented.

anything to a negative power is the inverse, or one over, the same thing to the positive power.

a^-b = 1/a^b
