## Adding Exponents

In this lesson, you will learn all about exponents and also how you can add two different exponents together. But to start off, let's review the definition of exponents.

Exponent: a power that a number is given.

For example let's say that we have the number 6 to the power of 3 and 4 to the power of 2. The first step in adding these is to find out the answer to each of these exponents.

6 to the power of 3 is the same thing as 6 x 6 x 6 which equals 216.

4 to the power of 2 is the same thing as 4 x 4 which equals 16.

Now all you have to do is add the two values together!

216 + 16 equals 232.

That means the sum of 6 to the power of 3 and 4 to the power of 2 is equal to 232.
