Hello 9-05! Today in class we went over our Check Your Understanding. Some people had a hard time to understand the difference between -2^4 and (-2)^4.
When the base is put in a bracket, everything in the bracket will be repeated depending on the exponent.
Remember this old saying? Well now it comes in handy.
When there is an even amount of negatives, the product is positive. When there is an odd amount of negatives, the product is negative.
When the base has no brackets, then you don't count the negative into the base.
If my explanation wasn't clear enough go to Mr. Backe for help because I can't make it any more clearer than that. (Sorry)
