In the table below, the number 2 is written as a factor repeatedly. The product of factors is also displayed in this table. Suppose that your teacher asked you to Write 2 as a factor one million times for homework. How long do you think that would take? Answer Factors 2x2= 2x2x2= 2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2= Product of Factors Description 4 2 is a factor 2 times 8 2 is a factor 3 times 16 2 is a factor 4 times 32 2 is a factor 5 times 64 2 is a factor 6 times 128 2 is a factor 7 times 256 2 is a factor 8 times

Writing 2 as a factor one million times would be a very time-consuming and tedious task. A better way to approach this is to use exponents. Exponential notation is an easier way to write a number as a product of many factors. BaseExponent The exponent tells us how many times the base is used as a factor. For example, to write 2 as a factor one million times, the base is 2, and the exponent is 1,000,000. We write this number in exponential form as follows: 2

1,000,000

read as two raised to the millionth power

Example 1: Write 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 using exponents, then read your answer aloud. Solution: 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 25 2 raised to the fifth power

Let us take another look at the table from above to see how exponents work. Exponential Factor Standard Form Form Form 22 = 23 = 2 =

2x2= 2x2x2= 2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2x2x2= 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2=

So far we have only examined numbers with a base of 2. Let's look at some examples of writing exponents where the base is a number other than 2.

Example 2: Write 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 using exponents, then read your answer aloud. Solution: 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 34 3 raised to the fourth power

Example 3: Write 6 x 6 x 6 x 6 x 6 using exponents, then read your answer aloud. Solution: 6 x 6 x 6 x 6 x 6 = 65 6 raised to the fifth power

Example 4: Write 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 using exponents, then read your answer aloud. Solution: 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 x 8 = 87 8 raised to the seventh power

Example 5: Solution:

**Write 103, 36, and 18 in factor form and in standard form. Exponential Factor Form Form 103 36 1
**

Standard Form 1,000 729 1

10 x 10 x 10 3x3x3x3x3x3 1x1x1x1x1x1x1x1

The following rules apply to numbers with exponents of 0, 1, 2 and 3: Rule Example Any number (except 0) raised to the zero power 1490 = 1 is equal to 1. Any number raised to the first power is always 81 = 8 equal to itself. If a number is raised to the second power, we say 32 is read as three it is squared. squared If a number is raised to the third power, we say it 43 is read as four is cubed. cubed Summary: Whole numbers can be expressed in standard form, in factor form and in exponential form. Exponential notation makes it easier to write a number as a factor repeatedly. A number written in exponential form is a base raised to an exponent. The exponent tells us how many times the base is used as a factor.
