An exponent is a small number written with another big number that
tells how many times to multiply the big number by itself. It looks
32 and this means 3 x 3 which equals 9.
The little 2 is the exponent
It DOES NOT mean to multiply the 3 by 2. It means to multiply the 3 times
Here's another one: 43 = 4 x 4 x 4 = 64.
The little 3 tells how many 4's to multiply together.
Now, can you tell me what 52 is?
