# Express the following in exponential form:

(i) 6 × 6 × 6 × 6 (ii) t × t (iii) b × b × b × b

(iv) 5 × 5× 7 × 7 × 7 (v) 2 × 2 × a × a

(vi) a × a × a × c × c × c × c × d

**Solution:**

A larger number can be written using an exponential notation in which there is a base and a smaller raised number called its power or exponent.

Exponent represents how many times the base will be multiplied by itself.

(i) 6 × 6× 6× 6

6 is multiplied 4 times

Base = 6 and Exponent = 4

6× 6× 6× 6 = 6^{4}

So, exponential form is 6^{4}

(ii) t × t

t is multiplied 2 times

Base = t and Exponent = 2

t × t = t^{2}

So, exponential form is = t ^{2}

(iii) b × b × b × b

b is multiplied 4 times

Base = b, exponent = 4

b × b × b × b = b^{4}

So, exponential form is b^{4}

(iv) 5 × 5 × 7 × 7 × 7

5 is multiplied 2 times and 7 is multiplied 3 times.

The base is 5 and 7 and exponent of 5 is 2 and 7 is 3.

5 × 5 × 7 × 7 × 7 = 5^{2} × 7^{3}

So, exponential form is 5^{2} × 7^{3}

(v) 2 × 2 × a × a

2 is multiplied 2 times, a is multiplied 2 times

Base is 2 and a and exponent of 2 is 2 and a is 2

2 × 2 × a × a = 2^{2} × a^{2}

So, exponential form is 2^{2} × a^{2}

(vi) a × a × a × c × c × c × c × d

In this, a is multiplied 3 times, c is multiplied 4 times, and d once.

The base is a, c and d. The exponent of a is 3, c is 4 and d is 1

a × a × a × c × c × c × c × d = a^{3} × c^{4} × d

So, exponential form is a^{3} × c^{4} × d
