What is 10 to the 2nd power?
The exponent or power of a number shows how many times the number is multiplied by itself.
Answer: The value of 10 raised to the 2nd power is 100.
Let us calculate the value of 10 raised to the 2nd power, i.e., 102
According to the Power Rule of Exponents,
am = a × a × a... m times
So, 102 can be written as 10 × 10 = 100
Thus, the value of 10 raised to the 2nd power, i.e., 102 is 100.
