If 'a' is an integer, the product of a x a x a x a x......x a for n times is denoted by a^{n}.
In a^{n},
a is called the base,
n is called the index, and
a^{n} itself is called the nth power of a.
Example:
2 x 2 x 2 x 2 is written as 2^{4}, where 2 is the base and 4 is the index.
Example:
Write (2) x (2) x (2) as a power.
(2)^{3}
More Examples:
3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 3^{6}
10 x 10 x 10 = 10^{3}
(7) x (7) x (7) = (7)^{3}
(12) x (12) x (12) x (12) x (12) = (12)^{5}
Directions: Choose the correct answer. Also write at least 10 examples of your own.
