In the notation for powers, e.g. Ab, A is the base (the number which is multiplied by itself) and b is the exponent (the number of times we mutiply it). An Exponent is how many times you get a certain Prime number in a factor tree.

I don''t remember what a base is.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is base and exponent of 625?

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.
