Exponents are a shorthand way to show how many times a number, called the base, is multiplied times itself. A number with an exponent is said to be "raised to the power" of that exponent.

Move your mouse over the numbers below to learn more.

Any number raised to the zero power (except 0) equals 1. Any number raised to the power of one equals itself.

If two numbers with exponents have the same base, you can multiply them by adding the exponents.
