Do you know how to calculate an exponent raised to an exponent? Taking an easier example, do you know how to calculate a number raised to anexponent?

2. den2070600

3. kittykat96

its 2 to the 4th power then that number to the 3rd power right?

4. gw2011

For example, how would you calculate 3^2?

5. den2070600

yes kitty

6. kittykat96

ok then you would do 2 times 2 which is 4 then times 2 again which is 8 then one more time making it a forth time times 2 making it 16 then u would times 16 by its self 3 times like i showed u with the 2
