its just how many times u are doing that number. like 10 to the power of two is 100 bc 10x10 (2 times) is 100. tell me if that makes sence lol

5+5=10 (5+5)

5x5=25 (5+5+5+5+5)

5 to the power of 5=125 (5x5x5x5x5) (5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5+5)

Exponents is to multiplication as multiplication is to addition

In P.E.M.D.A.S. (Parentheses, Exponents, Multiplication, Division, Addition, Subtraction) is the "order of operations" for longer math problems, (if you have to things that are in the same spot in pemdas you do it from left to right (P, E, M+D, A+S) multiplication and division are done at the same time, and addition and subtraction are done at the same time

TheEin PEMDAS stands for exponents

So if you do

10+7×4^5÷(3+6)=

10+7×4^5÷9

10+7×100÷9

10+700÷9

10+77.777... (I did the "..." Because it goes on forever)

87.777...

You are watching: What does to the power of mean

Thats how you do the order of operations... And i know the question was about to the power of but i got on a tangent LOL

When you use this symbol (^) and then a number, that symbolizes an exponent, and the number after that is the exponent

You are multiplying the number by itself, and what the number is "to the power of" is how many times you are multiplying it by itself. For example, 2 to the power of 3 is 8.

So if it’s 2x2 4 then that’s 1-3 2 then 4x2 8 so 2-1 1 and THEN 8x2 16 1-1 0….. right?

IM SO CONFUSED BC 2 to the power of four = 16? What i thought its 8 2x2x2x2=8 commentedJan 19by LunaLight(136,480 points)
No. 2+2+2+2 = 8, not multiplication. 2x2 is 4, 4x2 is 8, then 8x2 is 16.

It means add that many zeros to the end only works for 10 and up example one to the power of two is 1 10 to the power of 2 is 1000 commentedJan 19by LunaLight(136,480 points)

No. "to the power of" represents exponents (when there is a small number above a big number like 22).22​ means 2, multiplied by itself 2 times. 2x2 is 4. Take it from someone in a highschool level Algebra class.

It means to multiply that number by itself. So for example: 9 to the power of 2= 81
commentedOct 29, 2020by anonymous
actually it means to add that many zeros to the end for example 10 to the power of 2 =1000
commentedOct 30, 2020by s.k.gre actually, I am only 9and I think the first answer is right because I know all my times tables up to 11 and see for yourself it is right

https://www.online-calculator.com/

and also I checkedthe calculator so you might need to type 9 to the power of 9

It means that you are using a certain number as an exponent. For example, to the power of three means that three is your exponent.
