What are Exponents


Exponents are just another way of saying " to the power of ". For example if you get a exponent 6 to the power of 2 all they are asking you to do is to multiply 6 two times so if they would have said 6 to the power of 4 the product would be 6*6*6*6=1,296. So now we know that 6 to the power of 2 is 36 because 6*6=36.
To understand this topic better I suggest watching the video
