# Exponent

An exponent is a number that indicates how many times a number is multiplied by itself. The exponent of a number says how many times to use the number in a multiplication. What is the exponent of 2? The exponent of 2 is 2. This is because 2 raised to the power of 2 is 4, and 2 raised to the power of 3 is 8. Thus, the exponent of 2 is 2.

What is an example of a exponent? An exponent is a number that indicates how many times a number, called the base, is used as a factor. The base is written to the left of the exponent and the exponent is written as a superscript to the right of the base. For example, in the number 53, the 5 is the base and the 3 is the exponent. This can be written as 5^3.

### What is exponent and power?

An exponent is a number that indicates how many times a number, called the base, is used as a factor. The exponent of a number says how many times to use the number as a factor.

For example,

82 = 8 × 8 = 64

Here, 8 is the base and 2 is the exponent.

### What is the exponent of 36?

The exponent of 36 is 2. This can be seen by looking at the factors of 36:

36 = 2^2 * 3^2

Thus, the exponent of 36 is 2 + 2 + 2 = 6. What is 2 with an exponent of 7? 2 with an exponent of 7 is 128.
