We now give two additional laws that are useful in simplifying expressions with negative exponents. LAWS OF EXPONENTS Law a Ϫn b n 6. a b ϭ a b a b 7. aϪn bm Ϫm ϭ n b a Example 3 Ϫ2 4 2 a b ϭ a b 4 3 Description To raise a fraction to a negative power, invert the fraction and change the sign of the exponent. 3Ϫ2 45 ϭ 2 Ϫ5 3 4 To move a number raised to a power from numerator to denominator or from denominator to numerator, change the sign of the exponent. ▼ P R O O F O F L AW 7 Using the definition of negative exponents and then Property 2 of fractions (page 11), we have 1/an aϪn 1 # bm bm ϭ ϭ ϭ bϪm an 1 an 1/bm You are asked to prove Law 6 in Exercise 98.

In general, a property such as the intensity or frequency of sound, the oxygen level in a car’s exhaust emission, the colors in an image, or the temperature in your bedroom is transformed into sequences of numbers by sophisticated mathematical algorithms. These numerical data, which usually consist of many millions of bits (the digits 0 and 1), are then transmitted and reinterpreted. Dealing with such huge amounts of data was not feasible until the invention of computers, machines whose logical processes were invented by mathematicians.
