True or False - Graph
Please help with this question:

True or false? The graph of [LaTeX ERROR: Convert failed] , with a > 1, is the same as the graph of [Math] y = -a^x [/tex]

Your assistance is much appreciated.

Hint 1: $\frac 1a = a^{-1}$

Hint 2: Powers cannot change signs! if you have a positive number, you can't raise it to any power and get a negative number
