A positive exponent tells us how many times to multiply a base number, and a negative exponent tells us how many times to divide a base number.

In general,an tells you to use a in a multiplication n times

Therefore, a^n = a x a x a x.....n times

what about negative exponents? what could be opposite of multiplying? dividing!

So dividing is the inverse of multiplication

Therefore, a^-n = 1/ a^n = 1/ a x a x a.....n times.

Solved Example:
