4 is the base, 2 is the exponent.

Base -7 Exponent 12

Base 6, exponent 5.

It is not enough to look at the base. This is because a^x is the same as (1/a)^-x : the key is therefore a combination of the base and the sign of the exponent.0 < base < 1, exponent < 0 : growth0 < base < 1, exponent > 0 : decaybase > 1, exponent < 0 : decaybase > 1, exponent > 0 : growth.

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

The two are related. The answer could be base 2, exponent 18 or base 8, exponent 6 or base 10, exponent 5.4185 or base 262144, exponent 1 or base 68,719,476,736 and exponent 0.5

4 is the base, 2 is the exponent.

10x 10 is Base & x is exponent

If you have ab then a is the base and b the exponent

The base could be 11 and the exponent 2, giving 112 But, it could equally be base = 14641, and exponent = 0.5, or base = 10, and exponent = 2.082785 (approx)

For 104 the base is 10 and the exponent is 4.

The base is 7 and the exponent is 3.

Base -7 Exponent 12

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.

Base 6, exponent 5.

the base and the laws of exponent

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
