## Subtracting Exponents

In this lesson, you will learn all about exponents and also how to subtract two different exponents. But what is an exponent?

Exponent: A power that a number is given

For example let's say that we have the two exponents 5 to the power of 4 and 7 to the power of 3.

First, find the value of the two exponents.

5 to the power of 4 is the same thing as 5 x 5 x 5 x 5 which equals 625.

7 to the power of 3 is the same thing as 7 x 7 x 7 which equals 343.

Now just simply subtract the two to find the difference!

625 - 343 = 282

That means the difference of the two exponents is equal to 282.
