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

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 with itself.

## Answer: 1/3 to the power of 2 can be expressed as (1/3)^{2} = (1/3) × (1/3) = 1/9

Let us proceed step by step.

**Explanation:**

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

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

It means 1/3 is multiplied 2 times, that is, 1/3 × 1/3 = 1/9
