(i) (1/2)-3

= 1/(1/2)3

= (2/1)3

= 8

(ii) (2/5)-2

= (5/2)2

= 25/4

(iii)(-3)-5
= 1/(-3)5

= 1/-35

= 1/-81

(iv) (-4)-3
= 1/(-4)3

=1/-64

2. Evaluate (-3/7)-4 × (-2/3)2?

Solution:

Given (-3/7)-4 × (-2/3)2

= (7/-3)4 × (-2/3)2

= (-7/3)4 × (-2/3)2

= -74/34 *-22/32

= (-74*-22)/34*32

=74*22/36

= 9604/729

3. Simplify and find the value of (-1/2)-3 × (-1/2)-2?

Solution:

Given (-1/2)-3 × (-1/2)-2

Since bases are the same the exponents will be added

= (-1/2)-3-2
=(-1/2)-5

= (2/-1)5
= -32

4. Evaluate {[(-4)/2]3}-4?

Solution:

The given expression is in the form of (am)n = amn

Therefore, we just have to multiply the powers.

{[(-4)/2]3}-4 =(-4/2)-12

= (2/-4)12

5. Simplify (3-1 × 4-1)-1 ÷ 2-1

Solution:

= (1/3 ×1/4)-1÷ 2-1

= (3*4)÷1/2

= 12/(1/2)

= 12*2/1

= 24

6. Simplify: (1/4)-2 + (1/2)-2 + (1/5)-2?

Solution:

Given (1/4)-2 + (1/2)-2 + (1/5)-2

= 42+22 + 52

= 16+4+25

= 45

7. By what number should (1/3)-1 be multiplied so that the product is (-3/4)-1?

Solution:

(1/3)-1*x = (-3/4)-1
x= (-3/4)-1/(1/3)-1

= (4/-3)/(3/1)

= 4*3/-3*1

= 12/-3

= -4

8. If a = (3/5)2 ÷ (4/5)0 find the value of a-2?

Solution:

a = (3/5)2 ÷ (4/5)0

We know any non zero number raised to the power 0 is 1.

a = (3/5)2÷1

= 9/25÷1

= 9/25

a-2 = 1/a2

= 1/(9/25)2

= (25/9)2

= 625/81

9. Find the value of n, when 7n = 343?

Solution:

7n = 343

7n = 73

Since the bases are equal omitting the bases we get the n value i.e. 3.

10. Find the value of n when 812//n = 9?

Solution:

812//n = 9
(92)2/n = 9
94/n = 91

Since the bases are equal, equating the powers we get the value of n as under

4/n = 1

n = 4
