We have already learnt the concept of negative exponent, let us start an exercise based on this. Let us solve an example :
 2^{4}
In the example, 2^{4} can be written as 1/2^{4} since we have exponent with negative( – ).
Here 24 means 2 multiplied itself for 4 times, i.e., 2 x 2 x 2 x 2, we get as 16. Thus 1/2^{4} = 1/16.
Therefore we get result for 2^{4} as 1/16.
 8^{2}
In the example, 8^{2} can be written as 1/8^{2} since we have exponent with negative( – ).
Here 82 means 8 multiplied itself for 2 times, i.e., 8 x 8 we get 64. Thus 1/8^{2} = 1/64.
Therefore we get the result for 8^{2} as 1/64.
Let us try to solve few more examples :

3^{5}
 7^{5}
 9^{6}
In the first example, 3^{5} = 1/3^{5} = 1/243
Therefore the result for 3^{5} is 1/243.
Coming to second example, 7^{5} = 1/7^{5} =1/16807
Therefore the result for 7^{5} is 1/16807.
In the last example, 9^{6} = 1/9^{6} = 1/531441
Therefore the result for 9^{6} is 1/531441.
The examples have been illustrated in the video below :
