# How much is 1/2 to the power of 2?

For solving the above question we use the exponent rules. The exponent of any number represents how many times to use the number in a multiplication.

## Answer: 1/2 to the power of 2 is 1/4 or 0.25.

Let's solve this question by using the exponent rules.

**Explanation:**

Given that, 1/2 to the power of 2

According to the rule of exponent:

1/2 to the power of 2 can be written as (1/2)^{2}

Where 1/2 is called the base and 2 is the power of the expression.

Therefore, we can rewrite (1/2)^{2 }= 1/2 × 1/2

⇒ 1/2×1/2 = 1/4 or 0.25.
