6 multiplied by 6 multiplied by 6 multiplied by 6 = 1296

Six to the fourth power is simply six squared times six squared. Or 36 times 36. Anyone knows that 4 times 36 is 144, or can see that once it is presented to them or they think about it.

Next we take it times ten (adding a zero), 40 times 36 is 1440, but we needed 36 times 36, not 40 times 36. So lets chop that first 144 (4x36) off the 1440. 1440-144=1296. Viola!
