# What is 10 to the power of negative 7?

We will be looking at the concept of exponents in this section. Exponents are very crucial for calculations.

## Answer: 10 to the power of negative 7 is equal to 0.0000001.

Let's understand the solution.

**Explanation:**

When we calculate an exponent of the number then, then the result depends on the sign of the power.

If the power is negative, then the result will be less than one.

If the power is zero, then the result is one, as we know.

If the power is positive, then the result will be more than one.

Here, in this case, the power is -7, hence negative.

Now, 10^{-7} = 1/10^{7} = 0.0000001

Hence, we add 6 zeroes after the decimal.
