- Hey, Vanessa can you help me with this math problem?
- Were learning "Exponents."
- let look here
- Ok,
- sure, what's the problem?
- Les use 4 ^ 2 as an example. 4 ^ 2 is the same as 4 x 4, the two is the exponent (or power) and the four is the base.The two is how many times you multiply the base by itself.
- 4 ^ 2= 4*4
- That's still not making sense.
- sweep,sweep,sweep sweep,sweep
- Ok, so the four is the number your multiplying by itself. The 2 is how many times your multiplying before by itself. So 4 ^ 2 is equal to 4 * 4. Here's another one5 ^ 3 is equal to 5 times 5 times 5 because the three tells you how many times you going to multiply 5 by itself.
