and work shown and explained will be appreciated!!!
The best way to deal with this is first ignore the negative sign and calculate 2 ^5
2^5 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 32
Now 2 ^ -5 is simply the fraction 1/ 32 (this is called the reciprocal of 32)
So 2^-5 = 1/ 32
Another example: 3^2 = 9
So 3 ^-2 = 1 /9 (one ninth)
