# Calculate: (1)/(5^9)=5

## Expression: $\frac{ 1 }{ {5}^{9} }=5$

Write the expression in exponential form with the base of $5$

${5}^{-9}=5$

If a term doesn't have an exponent, its implied exponent is $1$

${5}^{-9}={5}^{1}$

Since the bases are the same, set the exponents equal

$-9=1$

The equality is false because the left-hand and the right-hand sides are different

$\textnormal{False}$
