Exponents are basically repeated multiplications. Take this for example: 3*3 = 32 In this example 32 is called the exponent; 3 is the base and 2 is the exponent. So to get an exponent you have to have a bunch of a SAME number multiplied by itself. The number that you multiplied it by itself is the base and the times you multiplied it is the exponent (written at the right side above of the base). Here are is two more examples: 9*9*9*9*9 = 95 4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4 = 411 Hope it helped!

Coefficient -5. Base: x. exponent: 3. Value: depends on the value of x. or Base: (-5)1/3x, exponent: 3

You answered your own question?

No, an exponent is not called a base number. the base is the number before the exponent: 34. 3 is the base, 4 is the exponent the expont could also be refered to as three to the fourth power

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.
