Question:

Solve: \((-3)^3\)

A −27
explanation

Remember the basic rules of exponents:
\(n^3 = n \times n \times n\)
\((-3)^3 = (-3) \times (-3) \times (-3)\)
When you multiply a negative and a negative you get a positive:
\(= 9 \times (-3)\)
When you multiply a negative and a positive you get a negative: = −27
