## What is negative 1 to the power of?

Basic rules for exponentiation

Rule or special case | Formula | Example |
---|---|---|

Power of one | x1=x | 21=2 |

Power of zero | x0=1 | 20=1 |

Power of negative one | x−1=1x | 2−1=12 |

Change sign of exponents | x−a=1xa | 2−3=123=18 |

## Can you have a negative 1 exponent?

The negative power will become just “1” once I move the base to the other side of the fraction line. Anything to the power 1 is just itself, so I’ll be able to drop this power once I’ve moved the base.

**What is a number to the negative 1?**

Answer: A positive number to the power negative 1 is a number that is always less than one. Let’s understand the solution. Instead, if the number is 0, then the result will be undefined, i.e, 0-1 = 1/0 which is undefined.

### What is negative 1 to the infinity?

The limit is thus undefined.

### What are the rules for negative exponents?

A negative exponent helps to show that a base is on the denominator side of the fraction line. In other words, the negative exponent rule tells us that a number with a negative exponent should be put to the denominator, and vice versa. For example, when you see x^-3, it actually stands for 1/x^3. Not too bad right?

**Does minus infinity exist?**

There is no such concept as negative infinity. Infinity can be related to anything that has constant recurrence, be it positive or negative. For Example.

#### Is infinity equal to infinity?

the Russian mathematician Ludwig Phillip Cantor demonstrated that there are an infinite number of numbers just between 0 and 1 and more than one kind of infinity – the countable and the uncountable: infinity equals infinity equals infinity and independent of dimension, as the mind-defying proposition goes.

#### Why is a negative number to the power of 0 1?

Answer: Negative number to the power of 0 is 1. We know that the exponent laws state that any number whether it is a positive number, negative number or an imaginary number except 0 raised to the power of zero is always equal to 1.

**What is the square of (- 1?**

Answer. Answer: The square root of minus one √(−1) is the “unit” Imaginary Number. Therefore it doesn’t exist.

## What is the square of negative 1?

The square root of minus one √(−1) is the “unit” Imaginary Number, the equivalent of 1 for Real Numbers. In mathematics the symbol for √(−1) is i for imaginary.
