Exponential term

Definition

A term that appears in exponential form is called an exponential term.

Any number can be written in exponential notation by writing the number in the form another number and number of its multiplying factors. The term in exponential notation is called an exponential term.

$4096 = 4 \times 4 \times 4 \times 4 \times 4 \times 4$

$4096 = 4^6$

$4^6$ is a term and it is in exponential form. Hence, the term $4^6$ is called an exponential term.

Examples

The following five examples are best examples for exponential terms.

$(1) \,\,$ $3^7$

$(2) \,\,$ ${(-5)}^4$

$(3) \,\,$ ${(0.52)}^6$

$(4) \,\,$ ${\Bigg(\dfrac{3}{5}\Bigg)}^2$
