4 is the base, 2 is the exponent.

52 (5 is the base and 2 is the exponent or power). The 2 says to multiply 5 by itself 2 times. 5*5 = 25

power

a power

The two are related. The answer could be base 2, exponent 18 or base 8, exponent 6 or base 10, exponent 5.4185 or base 262144, exponent 1 or base 68,719,476,736 and exponent 0.5

the base and the laws of exponent

The base could be 11 and the exponent 2, giving 112 But, it could equally be base = 14641, and exponent = 0.5, or base = 10, and exponent = 2.082785 (approx)

A base number is the value to the power of the exponent. For example, in 2^4, 2 is the base number and 4 is the exponent.

When the base is squared.

The exponent can only be found in the context of a base. But there is no base specified and so there can be no clear answer.On possible answer is that 262144 = 512^2 so, with the base 512, the exponent is 2.

You can define any base you like and calculate an appropriate exponent or, you can pick an exponent and calculate the base. So you can have base 25, with exponent 2 or base 5 and exonent 4 or base e (the base for natural logarithms) and exponent 6.437752 (to 6 dp) or base 10 and exponent 2.795880 (to 6 dp) or base 2 and exponent 9.287712 etc or base 8.54988 (to 3 dp) and exponent 3 or base 3.623898 (to 3 dp) and exponent 5 etc There is no need for the base to be an integer or even rational. Probably the most important bases in advanced mathematics is e, which is a transcendental number. Similarly, there is no need for the exponent to be an integer.
