x^2 = 4

x = ±2

**Anonymous**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 6:49pmthanks and what about this one ?

Simplify the expression

(3x^-1y^2)^3(5x^2y)0

I'm getting confused because of the negative exponent

**Steve**, Saturday, September 14, 2013 at 6:56pmanything^0 = 1, so we just have

(3x^-1y^2)^3 = 27 x^-3 y^6 = 27y^6/x^3

negative exponents indicate a swap between numerator and denominator

x^-3 = 1/x^3

1/x^-3 = x^3

recall that x^a/x^b = x^(a-b)
