42

An exponent indicates how many times a number is multiplied by itself, so any number can be written with the exponent 1, just as 99 = 991. Since an exponent of 1 does not change the value of a number, it is not usually shown. A number with an exponent 2 is squared and with a 3 is cubed, for example 42 = 4 x 4 = 16 and 33 = 3 x 3 x 3 = 27.

The power could then be called an exponent. The number that is being raised to a power is called the base. In the case of 42, the exponent is 2 and the base is 4.

Yes, 25 CAN BE and exponent. Any number can be and exponent

The exponent is a characteristic of a number. A measurement unit does not have an exponent. Since a metre is a measurement unit, it does not have an exponent.

A number with a negative exponent should be treated as the reciprocal of that same number with the analogous positive exponent. For example, 42 = 16, but 4-2 = 1/42 = 1/16.

42

A positive exponent in the denominator of a fraction, with one in the numerator. For example: 4-2 = 1/42 (Formatting difficult: read fraction as "one over four squared")

(3/4)2 = 32/42 = 9/16

it can be expressed as cubed, or with a 3 as a exponent. such as the volume being 42 with the little 3 above it

When the exponent on the number is 2, that means that it's squared. i.e. 42= four squared which is equal to sixteen.

if there is no exponent shown, then the exponent is 1. ex: 41
