-(5^-5)(3^3)

martai:

uhh

UkuleleGirl:

I'm doing factoring in algebra 3 rn.

UkuleleGirl:

All I know is when something is in parenthesis, you distribute.

YRJ8498:

I think i got it

YRJ8498:

\[-\frac{ 27 }{ 3125 }\]

UkuleleGirl:

Yea thats the answer I kept getting.

UkuleleGirl:

I just didn't know if it was right or if my math was correct

TETSXPREME:

answer choices

UkuleleGirl:

okay lets see

avacaplot:

the answer is b

UkuleleGirl:

What are you learning? what type of math is this?

avacaplot:

im in 8th grade

UkuleleGirl:

even tho i wasn't asking you that but ok

TETSXPREME:

actually the answer isnt B

avacaplot:

yes it is

UkuleleGirl:

What math are you learning tet

UkuleleGirl:

algebra? geometry?

TETSXPREME:

algebra

avacaplot:

what grade are u in

UkuleleGirl:

which one? there are 3

avacaplot:

do pemdas

Timmyspu:

DO you need help still tet because I am a bit confused if you do or not.

UkuleleGirl:

Yes they do

TETSXPREME:

yea i still need help

UkuleleGirl:

Hmm....

Timmyspu:

-(5^-5)(3^3) = \[-(5^2)(3^3)\] Right?

Timmyspu:

So the \[-(5^2)(3^3)\] So that would turn into -25 and 27 correct?

UkuleleGirl:

No. I think you read that wrong.

TETSXPREME:

i think its 9

UkuleleGirl:

You said \[(5^2) \] when its (5^-5) there is a negitive in the exponet

TETSXPREME:

thanks

UkuleleGirl:

no i was talking to uh timmy

Timmyspu:

Wouldnt those cancel out tho?

UkuleleGirl:

positive and a negative. those are multiplied.

UkuleleGirl:

That might be the case.

Timmyspu:

If you multiply a negative by a negative they equal a positive right?

UkuleleGirl:

Yes.

Timmyspu:

Well there you go.

UkuleleGirl:

Yep.

UkuleleGirl:

So it wouldn't be -25

Timmyspu:

Ya it woudnt be and I didnt see that I put it as -25. Oops my bad. xd

UkuleleGirl:

Lol

UkuleleGirl:

Now when I first did this on symbolab , I got -27/3125

UkuleleGirl:

but that isn't the answer

Timmyspu:

Tell you what. I want you to try to do this until you got the answer. Thats my challenge to you. xd

UkuleleGirl:

Challenge accepted.

UkuleleGirl:

ok tet what do you think we should do?

TETSXPREME:

🤷‍♂️idk

UkuleleGirl:

OK let me think

UkuleleGirl:

I got you tet.

UkuleleGirl:

so we know that 3 ^3 is 27

Timmyspu:

\[3^3\] 27

UkuleleGirl:

i said that hmph

UkuleleGirl:

Tet my math teacher is a genius. He went to collage for a long time for stuff like this. Ill find the answer

UkuleleGirl:

can you show the entire screen shot?

UkuleleGirl:

@timmyspu

Timmyspu:

Yes?

UkuleleGirl:

So turns out it doesn't cancel out.

UkuleleGirl:

this is what i did

UkuleleGirl:

UkuleleGirl:

it doesn't cancel out

UkuleleGirl:

bcs u take it out of the parenthesis

Timmyspu:

Alright tet told me he go the answer. So at this point you are welcome to keep on going but there isnt really a point anymore. Plus I have stuff that I have to get done. So well done congrats. Well have a nice day to you and tet. Also by the way you have to distribute the - xd

UkuleleGirl:

HE SHOUDLA SAID SOMEHING

axie:

im going to do it on paper, i have never gotten one of these wrong

UkuleleGirl:

Okay

UkuleleGirl:

well just so you dont get confused

UkuleleGirl:

symbolab gave us the answer \[\frac{ -27 }{ 3125 }\]

axie:

those are normally wrong

UkuleleGirl:

its not right. The answers are either \[\frac{ 1 }{ 9}, 9, -9, \ \frac{ -1 }{ 9 }\]

UkuleleGirl:

those are the ones tet gave.

poopoopeepee:

Lol this question is broken, or you posted the wrong question. Screenshot the whole thing.

UkuleleGirl:

what?

UkuleleGirl:

Its not my question

poopoopeepee:

istg its bcs YOU WROTE IT WRONG

UkuleleGirl:

YOU WROTEIT OUT WRONG TET

TETSXPREME:

no i didnt

I told u so lmao

UkuleleGirl:

YES YOU DID

TETSXPREME:

no i didnt

UkuleleGirl:

YOU SAID IT WAS -(5^-5)

poopoopeepee:

Anyways my work here is done

TETSXPREME:

@ukulelegirl wrote:

thats what it is?

UkuleleGirl:

NO

TETSXPREME:

um what?

poopoopeepee:

3!=5 bro

UkuleleGirl:

tet that is what you orignally said the problem was.

TETSXPREME:

ohh

UkuleleGirl:

you wrote it wrong

TETSXPREME:

i see now

UkuleleGirl:

okay so.

UkuleleGirl:

its \[-(3^-5)\]

UkuleleGirl:

but make the negtive 5 an exponet

UkuleleGirl:

it wont let me do negtive exponetes

axie:

I got \[-1/9\]

UkuleleGirl:

ok HOW

axie:

@ukulelegirl wrote:
ok HOW
Exponentiation: 3 ^ (-5) = 0.0041152263374486 = 1/243 add the minus= -1/243 Exponentiation: 3 ^ 3 = 27 Multiply: -1/ 243 * 27 = -1 · 27/ 243 · 1 = -27/ 243 = -1 · 27/ 9 · 27 = -1/ 9 Multiply both numerators and denominators. Result fraction keep to lowest possible denominator GCD(-27, 243) = 27. In the following intermediate step, it cannot further simplify the fraction result by canceling. In other words - minus one two-hundred forty-third multiplied by twenty-seven = minus one ninth.

axie:

my hands hurt now

UkuleleGirl:

lol

axie:

Heck you for making me type out what i did on paper >:C

UkuleleGirl:

lol

poopoopeepee:

\(\large -(3^{-5})(3^3)=-(3^{(-5+3)}=-(3^{-2})=-\frac{1}{9}\)

poopoopeepee:

Oops closing parenth broken. U get the point
