An exponent tells you how many times a number is multiplied by itself. For example, if you have the number 3 and you want to multiply it by itself six times you could write it out as follows:

3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 =

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 “6” because we want to multiply 3 times itself six times. To show this using a superscript it will look like:

36

36 = 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3

We then solve it as: 3 x 3 = 9 x 3 = 27 x 3 = 81 x 3 = 243 x 3 = 729

36 = 729

We can then multiply and/or divide using exponents as follows:

23 x 52 =
2 x 2 = 4 x 2 = 8
5 x 5 = 25
8 x 25 = 200
23 x 52 = 200
