How to Solve Exponents

Intro

Exponents are a new concept to some, but they are simple to solve. It is basically a shorter way to write a long multiplication problem.

Sample Problem

Solve these exponential expressions:
5^3
3^2
4^0

Solution

Simply multiply the base number by itself. The number of times depends on what the exponent says.

5^3=(5)(5)(5)=125

3^2=(3)(3)=9

Any number raised to zero is one.

4^0=1
