What is 3 by the power of 4?
Examples: 3 raised to the power of 4 is written 34 = 81..
How do you solve powers?
First you raise the expressions in the parentheses to their powers. Then multiply the two expressions together. You get to see multiplying exponents (raising a power to a power) and adding exponents (multiplying same bases). Example 3: Next is an example with negative exponents.
What does a little 3 next to a number mean?
3 × 3 × 3. = 27. Note: we write “3 Cubed” as 33. (the little 3 means the number appears three times in multiplying)
What does a power of 3 mean?
+3 votes. answered Dec 4, 2016 by L (77,000 points) It means that you are using a certain number as an exponent. For example, to the power of three means that three is your exponent.
What is 6 by the power of 3?
729The answer to 3 to the 6th power is 729.
How do you calculate to the power of 3?
A number, X, to the power of 2 is also referred to as X squared. The number X to the power of 3 is called X cubed. X is called the base number. Calculating an exponent is as simple as multiplying the base number by itself.
Why is the power of 3 called cubed?
The term “cube” can be remembered because there are three dimensions in a cube (height, width, and depth) and the number being cubed appears three times in the calculation.
What does 2 to the third power mean?
The phrase “two to the third power” or “two cubed” has a base of 2, an exponent of 3, and means that 2 is used as a factor 3 times.
What does 10 to the power of 3 mean?
Example: 103 = 10 × 10 × 10 = 1,000 In words: 103 could be called “10 to the third power”, “10 to the power 3” or simply “10 cubed”
How do you solve big powers?
As with most problems in basic algebra, solving large exponents requires factoring. If you factor the exponent down until all the factors are prime numbers – a process called prime factorization – you can then apply the power rule of exponents to solve the problem.
How do you divide powers?
To divide exponents (or powers) with the same base, subtract the exponents. Division is the opposite of multiplication, so it makes sense that because you add exponents when multiplying numbers with the same base, you subtract the exponents when dividing numbers with the same base.
What does 7 to the power of 3 mean?
72 = 7 • 7 = 49. You can read 72 as “seven squared.” This is because multiplying a number by itself is called “squaring a number.” Similarly, raising a number to a power of 3 is called “cubing the number.” You can read 73 as “seven cubed.”
