• Exponents
• There is a shorter way to show multiplication when the factors are the same.
In the example provided, 3 is the base and 2 is the exponent. The exponent tells how many times the base is used as a factor. The exponent also tells the power of the base. The answer 9 is the second power of 3. You can use other numbers as exponents.
For example:
31 = 3 (3 is the factor 1 time= 3)
33 = 27 (3 is the factor 3 times
= 3 X 3 X 3)
Special Note: The product of two negative numbers is positive.
-25 = -32 (-2 is the factor 5 times
= -2 X -2 X -2 X -2 X -2)
• Here are some more examples
• It’s Your Turn!! Let’s Practice
Solve the following:
62 = ? Use 6 as a factor 2 times.
Remember to multiply.
