An exponent is a small superscript number that tells you how many times a number is multiplied by itself. For example, if you have the number 4 and you want to multiply it by itself five times you could write it out as follows:

4 x 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 =

This can become too long to always write out so we use a shortcut using a superscript number. In this case the superscript number would be “5” because we want to multiply 4 times itself five times. To show this using a superscript it will look like:

45

45 = 4 x 4 x 4 x 4 x 4

We then solve it as: 4 x 4 = 16 x 4 = 64 x 4 = 256 x 4 = 1024

45 = 1024

We can then add and/or subtract using exponents as follows:

32 + 73 =
3 x 3 = 9
7 x 7 = 49 x 7 = 343
9 + 343 = 352
32 + 73 = 352

24 + 93 =
2 x 2 = 4 x 2 = 8 x 2 = 16
9 x 9 = 81 x 9 = 729
16 + 729 = 745
24 + 93 = 745

10 + 44 - 43 =
4 x 4 = 16 x 4 = 64 x 4 = 256
4 x 4 = 16 x 4 = 64
10 + 256 = 266 - 64 = 202
10 + 44 - 43 = 202

63 + 54 - 35 =
6 x 6 = 36 x 6 = 216
5 x 5 = 25 x 5 = 125 x 5 = 625
3 x 3 = 9 x 3 = 27 x 3 = 81 x 3 = 243
216 + 625 = 841 - 243= 598
63 + 54 - 35 = 598
Answer (b), therefore, shows the correct Order of Operation

12 x 12 = 144 x 12 = 1728
9 x 9 = 81
100 + 1728 = 1828 - 81 = 1747
