# Exponential term

A term that expressed in exponential notation to represent a quantity is called an exponential term.

Any number can be written in exponential form on the basis of another number to represent the quantity simply and the term is called an exponential term.

For example, $64$ is a number and it can be written in exponential form on the basis of number $2$.

$64 \,=\, 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \,=\, 2^6$

The number $64$ is written in exponential form as $2^6$ and therefore, the term $2^6$ is called an exponential term.

## Types of terms

Exponential terms are usually appeared in two forms.

01

#### Pure Exponential term

A term which represents a quantity in exponential form purely is called a pure exponential term.

02

#### Simple exponential term

A term which represents a quantity as a product of factors in exponential notation simple is called a simple exponential term.
