CAN SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP ME WITH A CALCULATOR AND TELL ME WHAT 27^(-1/2) IS? THAT READS "27 TO THE NEGATIVE ONE HALF". THANK U! enter 27 press the y^x or x^y key, whichever you have enter (1/2 +/- ) press = to get .19245

**math**

what is 27^(-1/2)? thanks. i don't have my calculator on me. well, that's the same as 1/(square root of 27).. so if you simplify it, you will end up with 1/(3square root of 3).
