# What is 2 raised to the power of 100?

Exponent of a number shows how many times we are multiplying a number by itself.

## Answer: 2 raised to the power of 100 is 1.2676506002 × 10^{30}

Let's calculate 2 raised to the power of 100

**Explanation:**

According to the Power Rule of Exponents,

(a^{m})^{n} = a^{mn}

Thus, 2^{100} can be written as (2^{10})^{10}

=> 2^{100} = (2^{10})^{10}

=> 2^{100} = (1024)^{10}

=> 2^{100} = 1, 267,650,600,228,229,401,496,703,205,376

Thus, 2^{100} = 1.2676506002 × 10^{30}
