**Answers:**

Let me guess, public school?

A negative number to an even power is even.

A negative number to an odd power.

Parentheses take precedence over exponentiation

A unary - takes precedence over exponentiation, so -(-2) would first be converted to +2 prior to the exponentiation

Exponentiation takes precedence over multiplication, so

in the 3(-4)^3 problem, you do the exponentiation first, then multiply

-(-2) to the third power

-(-2)= 2

2 to the third power= 2x2x2=8

hope tht helps a little

You just need to know (if you honestly don't already!) that two negatives make a positive, a negative and a positive make a negative and anything in brackets needs to be worked out first. The rest is easy.
