An exponent is the power that a number is raised to. For instance, in the expression 3^2 ("three squared"), 2 is the "exponent" and 3 is the "base." A positive exponent just means that the power is a positive number. For instance, the following expression does not involve a positive exponent: 3^(-2). Horses rule!!!!!

Two to the sixth power. 8 with an exponent of 2 equals 64 and 4 with an exponent of 3 equals 64

When you write 53 , the whole thing is called a power. The 5 is the base, and the 3 is the exponent.

3^(5) = 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 243 The word 'exponent' can also be shown as ' index number' or 'power'.

In the expression 43, 4 is the base and 3 is the exponent.

The exponent tells how many times the base is used as a factor. Three to the fourth power is 3 x 3 x 3 x 3

If the exponent or raised power of a number is in the form of p/q the exponent is said to be rational exponent. For example= 11/2 22/3

An exponent means "this many times." So, 4 cubed (to the power of 3; a 3 exponent.) is 4 NOT times 3, but 3 TIMES. So it is 4x4x4(=64). Or, 5 to the power of 5 is 5 times itself 5 times, so, 5x5x5x5x5(=3,125). 3 to the power of 9 is 3 times itself 9 times. Basically, the exponent tells how many times you multiply the number by itself. Does that help?
