Pablo simplified the expression (2 Superscript negative 4 Baseline) Superscript negative 2 as shown.

(2 Superscript negative 4 Baseline) Superscript negative 2 = 2 Superscript negative 4 times 2 Baseline = 2 Superscript negative 8

Which statement explains Pablo’s error?
He should have added the exponents instead of multiplying them.
He should have divided the exponents instead of multiplying them.
He should have found 8 as the exponent, not –8.
He should have written 2 Superscript negative 8 as StartFraction 1 Over 2 Superscript 8 Baseline EndFraction.

  5. type using real fractions and exponents, so we can read it.

    (2 Superscript negative 4 Baseline) Superscript negative 2 as shown

    (a) is not shown
    (b) makes my eyes bleed

    (2^-4)^-2 = 2^(-4 * -2) = 2^8
    or
    (2^-4)^-2 = 1/(2^-4)^2 = 1/2^-8 = 2^8
