# How to express 1/2 to the power of 3?

Power in exponents is defined as the total number of times we use the number in a multiplication. For example 2 to the power 3 means 2 is multiplied 3 times.

## Answer: 1/2 to the power of 3 can be expressed as (1/2)^{3} = (1/2) × (1/2) × (1/2) = 1/8

Let us proceed step by step.

**Explanation:**

The two important terms used frequently in exponents are base and powers.

To find 1/2 to the power of 3, we can write it in exponent form as (1/2)^{3}, where 1/2 is base and 3 is power. Power should always be written on top of the base.

It means 1/2 is multiplied 3 times that is (1/2)^{3} = (1/2) × (1/2) × (1/2) = 1/8

### Hence, 1/2 to the power of 3 can be expressed as (1/2)^{3} = (1/2) × (1/2) × (1/2) = 1/8.
