**EXPONENTS**

An exponent tells how many of the

**base numbers**get multiplied together.

The base number is the number being multiplied times itself.

16^4 the 16 is the

**base**

The 4 is the

**exponent**

You read this as "16 to the 4th power."

This means you have four 16's multiplied.

16 x 16 x 16 x 16 = 65,536

Squared means the exponent is "2" or you can say "number to the second power."

**Cubed**means the exponent is "3" of you can say "number to the third power."

If the exponent is

**zero**(0), the product will equal 1
