The table on the right has the header “x to the fifth power” and lists the numbers 0, 1, 32, 243, negative 1, negative 32, and negative 243. There are arrows starting at numbers in the x table and pointing towards numbers in the x to the fifth power table. The first arrow goes from negative 3 to negative 243. The second arrow goes from negative 2 to negative 32. The third arrow goes from negative 1 to 1. The fourth arrow goes from 0 to 0. The fifth arrow goes from 1 to 1. The sixth arrow goes from 2 to 32. The seventh arrow goes from 3 to 243.
