4^2 just means (4)(4). If you had a problem that asked to write (5)(5)(5)(5) as a exponent, then your answer would be 5^how many (5) there are...So its 5^4. Hope this helps :)

\[\large 4^2 \ne (4)^2\]Careful! Make sure to include the brackets! :)

zepdrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[\large x \cdot x = x^2\]\[\large 3 \cdot 3 =3^2\] Applying this gives us, \[\large (4)\cdot(4)=(4)^2\] So yah I guess that's what you were looking for :) To simply introduce an exponent so it looks simpler.

Yes (4)(4)=(4)^2=16(positive) (4)(4) =4^2 =16(negative)
