The power or exponent.
What is the number or expression in a power that is multiplied by itself
a^17 x b^14 where ^ means "raised to the power of.."
It is the base, while the power is the exponent.
A base number is used as a factor in a power.
the power of the number is when the number has a little number beside it and the number is multiplied that many times :) :)
