Exponential Form and Standard Form 
Standard Form is the "normal" way we
see numbers Exponential form is a way of expressing a standard number using a base and a smaller raised number called an exponent. Rules for writing in exponential form: An exponent is used to tell how many times a number, called the base is used as a factor: Step 1 – Multiply the base number times the base number as many times as the value of the exponent Example: 5^{6} = 5 • 5 • 5 • 5 • 5 • 5 = 15625 5^{6} is in exponential form 5 • 5 • 5 • 5 • 5 • 5 is in expanded form 15625 is in standard form When the exponent is ^{2} we say we are squaring the base number Example: 4^{2} = four squared = 16 When the exponent is ^{3} we say we are cubing the base number Example: 4^{3} – four cubed = 64
