# What is 9 to the power of 5?

We will solve the above question by the multiplication rule of exponents and power. The exponent or power of any number signifies how many times to use the number in a multiplication.

## Answer: 9 to the power of 5 is 59049.

Let's solve the above question by following steps.

**Explanation:**

Given: 9 to the power of 5

The rules for exponentiation states that if n is a positive integer and p is any real number, then p^{n} can be represented as:

p^{n} = p × p × … × p (n times)

Hence, 9 to the power of 5 can be written as 9^{5}.

Here 9 is called the base, whereas 5 is the power or exponent of the expression.

Therefore, 9^{5 }= 9 × 9 × 9 × 9 × 9 = 59049
