Hi;

For number 1, I can not understand most of that.

Oh, I get it.

1) C is correct. You could put some spaces in there. Powers like x squared are written like this x^2 instead of x2.

Hi;

If this is what 2) is:

Then C is incorrect! Try again please.

Hi;

When you raise an expression to a power you are really doing this:

So the exponent is (-3)+(-3)+(-3)+(-3)+(-3) = -15

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Nope, I do not think so. I think you write it without the decimal point. Right now it is in scientific notation.
