3-59.

Use your exponent patterns to rewrite each of the expressions below. For example, if the original expression has a negative exponent, then rewrite the expression so that it has no negative exponents, and vice versa. Also, if you can simplify the expression, go ahead and do so. Note: In part (b), assume that $m ≠ 0$.

1. $k^{−5}$

$\frac{1}{k^5}$

1. $m^{0}$

$1$

1. $x^{−2} · x^{5}$

$x^{3}$

1. $\frac { 1 } { p ^ { 2 } }$

$p^{−2}$

1. $\frac { y ^ { - 2 } } { y ^ { - 3 } }$

1. $\left(x^{−2}\right)^{3}$

1. $\left(a^{2}b\right)^{−1}$

1. $\frac { 1 } { x ^ { - 1 } }$

Use what you know about exponents to give answers with positive exponents.
