# How do you rewrite #1/(3*3*3) using a negative exponent?

Oct 8, 2017

I'm assuming you meant the following: $\frac{1}{3 \cdot 3 \cdot 3}$

If so, the first thing you would do is simplify the denominator:

$\frac{1}{27}$

Using a negative exponent, you can write that as:

${27}^{-} 1$

Remember this: if you have any fraction in the form $\frac{1}{x}$, you can rewrite the expression as ${x}^{-} 1$.
