Answer

When $x=-2$: $-\frac{1}{3}$ When $x=0$: $-1$ When $x=2$: $-3$

Work Step by Step

For $x=-2$: $-3^{0.5 * -2}$ = $-3^{-1}$ = -$\frac{1}{3^{1}}$ = -$\frac{1}{3}$ For $x=0$: -$3^{0.5*0} = -1$; (Any nonzero raised to the 0 power is equal to 1) For $x=2$: $3^{0.5 * 2}$ = $3^{1}$ = $\frac{1}{3^{1}}$ = $\frac{1}{3}$
