Powers and Exponents Objective: Learn to use powers and exponents.

Two or more numbers that are multiplied together to form a product are called factors. Ex. 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 = 16 5 × 5 × 5 = 125 When the same factor is used several times, you may write it using exponents.

The exponent tells how many times the base is used as a factor. base The common factor is called the base 2 exponent factors base For example: 2× 2 × 2 × 2 = 2 4 exponent factors base Numbers that use exponent are also called powers.

Example: Write each power as a product of the same factor (Or write each power in expanded form.) 7 7 5 = 7 × 7 × 7 × 7 × 7 Seven is used as a factor 5 times. Your Example: 9 5 = Example 2: 5 3 = Example 3: 8 7 =

You can evaluate or find the value of powers by multiplying the factors. You can evaluate or find the value of powers by multiplying the factors. 2 2 5 = 2 × 2 × 2 ×2 × 2 = 32 Numbers written without exponents are in standard form (or the final answer after you multiply the factors.) Examples: 4 3 = 10 2 = 3 5 =
