# What is the value of 3 times 10 to the power of 8?

We solve this question by using the multiplication rule of exponents and power. Basically, the exponent of any number represents how many times to use the number in a multiplication.

## Answer: The value of 3 times 10 to the power of 8 is 300000000.

Let's solve this question by using the exponent rules.

**Explanation:**

According to the rule of exponent, if n is a positive integer and a is any real number, then a^{n} can be represented as:

a^{n} = a × a × … × a (n times)

So, 3 times 10 to the power of 8 can be written as

3 × (10)^{8}

= 3 × (10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10)

= 300,000,000
