This one should seem easy, but for some reason I can't get the right answer. Just a question from a random math site.

(1/(x^-2))^-3

Thanks,

Thanks,

$$(\frac{1}{x^{-2}})^{-3}=(x^2)^{-3}=x^{2*(-3)}=x^{-6}=\frac{1}{x^6}$$.

For more on the this subject check Exponents chapter of Number theory: math-number-theory-88376.html

Hope it helps.

P.S. Please post answer choices for PS problems, if available. If it's not a GMAT PS question then post it in Main Math Forum.
