Miss sue did you notice the answer you gave me the person who did it didn't do it right because its to the negative 4 power thanks . Can you try to solve it on your own? Thanks if you do.

Oh Sam and me are the same person in this question.

• Sam or Dave or Evan - Algebra 1 I need help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - ,

Please try to stick with one name.

If you had looked carefully at the solution I gave you before, you would have noticed that I took care of the
a^-4 by converting it to 1/a^4

Here is what I did, look it over carefully

#7 , the way you typed it ... it would be

(1/2)a^-4 b^2
= (1/2)(1/(-2)^4 (4)^2
= (1/2)(1/16)(16) = 1/2
