Taylor completed the problem below. Describe and correct the error in the problem.

2–4 = –2 • –2 • –2 •–2 =16 (1 point)

1. Taylor changed the negative exponent to a negative base.

2. (0 pts) Taylor did not multiply correctly. The answer should be 16.

3. Taylor made the answer positive. It should be –16.

1. Taylor did not multiply by –1. The problem should be multiply by negative one.


Please explain why the answer is correct. Thanks!

    Anonymous is right. Your mom, you need be nicer u r just a bully.

    Here are the answers.....
    1. B = -9
    2. C = y^19
    3. D = w^-6
    4. A = 4 • 2^3/ 2^3
    5. A = Taylor changed the negative exponent to a negative base. The problem should be 2^-4 = 1/2^4 = 1/2•2•2•2= 1/16
