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!

The answer is obviously 16.

Actually it is not... because that is what i told my math teacher and she said it was wrong... thanks anyway, though.

The answer is 1. Taylor changed the negative exponent to a negative base

The answer is 1. Taylor changed the negative exponent to a negative base

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 
I got a 100% with these answers

thank you Salted Caramel! :D

Yup...
