# What is a number to the power of 1?

We will be looking at the concept of exponents on this page. Exponents are very important for calculations and are used in many subjects like physics and chemistry.

## Answer: A number to the power of 1 is the number itself.

Let's understand the solution.

**Explanation:**

When we calculate the result with a number is raised to the power of 1, we get the original number itself.

This is a very important property of exponents.

For example, 2^{1} = 2; 3000^{1} = 3000; (1/4)^{1} = 1/4 and so on.
