# Any number to the power of 1 is?

The rules of exponents state that the exponent of a number represents how many times we do multiplication of a number by itself.

## Answer: Any number to the power of 1 is the number itself.

Let's solve this step by step.

**Explanation:**

We have given 'any number to the power of 1'.

Basically, the rules for exponentiation state that If 'm' is a positive integer and k is any real number, then k^{m} can be represented as:

k^{m} = k × k × … × k (m times)

Now, if we put m equal to 1 then, k^{1 }= k.
