-4^-2

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Be more specific; \(-4^2\ne(-4)^2\).

jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

-4^-2 -1/(4^2) -1/16 So \[\Large -4^{-2} = -\frac{1}{16}\]

Parth (parthkohli):

\(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {1 \over -4^2} }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {1 \over 16} }\)

OpenStudy (turingtest):

those are the two possibilities :)

parth I think you should have put parentheses around the -4 if you want a positive answer though

Parth (parthkohli):

Oh yes.. Thanks
