# How much is 1/4 to the power of 2?

Exponent rules state that the exponent of any number represents how many times to use the number in a multiplication.

## Answer: 1/4 to the power of 2 is 1/16 or 0.0625.

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

**Explanation:**

Given: 1/4 to the power of 2

According to the rule of exponent:

1/4 to the power of 2 can be written as (1/4)^{2}

Here, 2 is the power of the expression and 1/4 is called the base.

Therefore, we can rewrite (1/4)^{2 }= 1/4 × 1/4

⇒ 1/4 × 1/4 = 1/16 or 0.0625.
