you'll have to be more specific with your question, it's pretty in coherent

Rules for exponents to multiply powers, add the exponents to divide powers, subtract the exponents to find a power of a power, multiply the exponents to find a power of a quotient, apply the power top and bottom to find a power pf a product, apply the exponent to each factor in the product x0 = 1 anything to the power zero equals one x-a = 1/xa a negative exponent means "one over" the positive exponent

10 to the 5 th power

4^(5)

If your multiplying two numbers with the same base you add the exponents. EX. 4^2 * 4^3 This means 4 to the 2nd power times 4 to the 3rd power. You just add the 2 and 3. Now it becomes: 4^5 Hope this helped!

The rule is that you multiply the exponents. So if I have 2 squared and I want to raise it to the third power, you multiply the 2x3=6. When you multiply powers you add the exponents. When you raise exponents to a power you multiply. This works for rational exponents which can be used to represent roots as well.

Raise a power to a power by multiplying the two exponents together; e.g. (x 2)3 is x6

If you're multiplying numbers with exponents, add the exponents. 32 x 33 = 35 If you're raising exponents to a power, multiply the exponents. 3 squared to the third power = 36

exponents multiply together in this case. Ie (10^10)^10=10^100

When I use ^ that means to raise it up as an exponent.70=2x5x7The only exponents are to the first power and we usually don't write those.

To calculate this, write the number as a power of ten, and use the fact that when you raise a power to a power, you simply multiply the exponents. (10^10)100 = 10^20

NEITHER! Look at 4+8 which you know is 12 4 is 2^2 and 8 is 2^3 2^2+2^3=12 but no power of 2 is equal to 12? So the answer is NEITHER. When you multiply numbers, you add the exponents and when you raise and exponent to a power, you multiply exponents. In the example i gave, you could factor out the smallest power and you have 2^2(1+2)=2^2x3=4x3=12 That is how you do this type of problem. Either raise the numbers to their powers and add them, or factor and add.

You can use the Math.pow function to raise one number to the power of another. Math.pow(24, 3) will return 243

4 to the 2nd power in exponents is 42

Assuming the calculator can do exponents, take the number and raise it to the power of 1/2.

Since 11 appears 4 times as a factor, you need to raise 11 to the power 4.
