Exponential term

A term that represents a quantity in exponential notation is called an exponential term.

Introduction

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.
