    Math - exponents

    9^(-32)^(125)^x = 1/3

    Solve for x.

    Please help?

    Wait, just making sure...
    It's 9 to the -32 power, to the 125 power, to the x power, equals 1/3?

    Don't you just multiply the exponents? Kinda like how if you plug in ((2^2)^2)^2 in a calculator you'll get 256, but if you just multiply the exponents you get 8, and 2^8=256

    Logarithms can bring down exponents, or (z^y)^s= z^(ys) .
    I would double check the question though, because that won't be a pretty answer

    The answer, oddly enough, is -1/3.
