\[10x ^{-2}=\frac{10}{x ^{2}}\]
You can make use of this rule.

i don't get it

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[\sqrt[3]{xy^2}\]

i am totally baffles by the one above too,,,

OpenStudy (kropot72):

To eliminate the negative exponent of x I used the following process:
\[10x ^{-2}=\frac{10x ^{-2}}{1}\]
Next multiply the numerator an the denominator of the fraction by x^2
\[\frac{10x ^{-2}\times x ^{2}}{x ^{2}}=\frac{10x ^{0}}{x ^{2}}=\frac{10}{x ^{2}}\]

where did u get the 10 x to start with???

OpenStudy (kropot72):

The choice of 10x^-2 was just an example of the process to eliminate a negative exponent (without actually giving the answer to your question).

OpenStudy (kropot72):

Good!
