"2 to the power of 4" is written "two to the fourth power", and "8 to the power of 2" is known as "eight squared". And, eight squared is greater than two to the fourth power.

Eight squared is 64, and two to the fourth power is 16.

### What is the answer to 2 to the power of 3?

### What number can be written as a power of 2 4or 8 It is greater than 3 raised to the third powerWhat is the number?

3 raised to the third power is 3 x 3 x 3 = 27 The smallest number that cane be written as a power of 2,4, or 8 is 256, since 256 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 2 to power 8 256 = 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 = 4 to power of 4 256 = 16 x 16 = 16 to power 2

### What example is there for when a power of 2 is equal to a power of 4 and greater than the number 40?

4 = 2&sup2; &rarr; 4^x = 2^(2x) We want 4^x &gt; 40 Taking logs gives: x log 4 &gt; log 40 &rarr; x &gt; log 40 / log 4 This can be solved to find a value of x to be greater than (approx) 2.661 Thus 4^2.662 = 2^5324 &asymp; 40.06 is an example. So all powers of 4 where the power is greater than approx 2.661 with 2 to the power of twice that power of 4 will solve the problem. If you are looking for integer powers of 2 and 4, then the first integer power of 4 is 4&sup3; = 64 = 2^6, and the solutions are: 4^3 = 2^6 = 64 4^4 = 2^8 = 256 4^5 = 2^10 = 1024 etc.

### When a whole number greater than one is divided by a unit fraction less than one the quotientis always greater than the dividend?

No. The quotient is less than or greater than the dividend, depending on the sign of the fraction.4 / (1/2) = 8, which is greater than 4.4 / (-1/2) = -8, which is smaller than 4.-4 / (1/2) = -8, which is smaller than -4.-4 / (-1/2) = 8, which is greater than -4.

### Is two eighths greater than sixth eighths?

No. 6 is greater than 8. 2/8 =1/4, 6/8=3/4.

### Express 4 as a power of 8?

8^(2/3) 8^(1/3) = 2, 2^2 = 4 -&gt; 8^(2/3) = 4
