D YES

What is -a^-2 if a = -5?

a. -25

b. 25

c. -1/25

d. 1/25

D No -1/(-5)^2 = -1/25 so C

What is (-m)^-3n if m = 2 and n = -24?

a. 3

b. -3

c. 4

d. -4

A NONE OF THESE. -2^72 is huge. You have a TYPO

It is not -3n. It is (-m)^-3 n. So it would be -.125* -24, which is how I did it.

[(-m)^-3 ] n

[1/(-2)^3] (-24)

(1/-8)(-24)

3

YES A

Thank you so much! Just one quick question...is it a rule to always simplify first and then substitute, as in question 2?
