What is the base and exponent of 125?

If you are referring to the number 125 itself, then 125 is the base, and 1 is the exponent. This would be written as 1251. This number can also be written as 53, as 5 cubed also equals 125. In this case, 5 is the base, and 3 is the exponent. The main integer value is the base, the number to the upper right of it is the exponent. The exponent tells you how many times to multiply the base number by itself to find the answer.
