What are Exponents?
In mathematics, exponents are the contracted form of larger value of multiplication. For example, three multiply by six time is equal to 729 (3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 729) so this multiplication method is long. We do not enough time to solve such lengthy value that is why we need short cut. So, mathematician take leverage of exponents. There are two categories to learn exponents in numbers that is power and base. The second form or name of exponent is POWER that we express it in short form. For instance, if we have a number 3 and another value expressed in a small form at the above side of 6 then, we will consider a digit three Base and the digit six Power. There are also other forms of exponent that mathematicians use in the questions. That are Negative and Positive exponents. There are different methods to solve both of them. When we have negative exponents, we will remove the sign of subtraction by converting the bases into division or fraction form. For instance, if we have the Base 7 and Power -2 like this 7-2, we will convert the value into fraction form like this 1/7.
