# Can you have more than one exponent on top of a number?

Yes, you can, but it starts getting complicated. You can, for example have a number raised to an exponent that is itself a number raised to an exponent, or you can have a number raised to an exponent and the result raised to another exponent.

### Is 13 an exponent?

Not sure what you're asking. Any number can be an exponent, like 1013, where 13 would be the exponent in this case. If you were given the number 13, and asked what the exponent was, the answer would be one (1), since any number to the 1 power equals that number, so 131 = 13, if no exponent is given then it is assumed to be one (1).

### How do you put a number into scientific notation?

Count the number of spaces to move the decimal until the number has one (non-zero) digit to the left of the decimal. If the original number is larger than 1, then the exponent is positive, if smaller than 1 the exponent is negative. The exponent is that number of spaces that the decimal was moved. EX: 5100 = 5.1 x 102 and 0.00064 = 6.4 x 10-4

### What is the scientific notation of 561?

5.61 x 102 , you just move the decimal so that the original number is greater than or equal to one but less than 10 then multiply that by 10 to the power of the number of decimal places you had to move. If you moved the decimal to the left, the exponent is positive, if you moved the decimal to the right, the exponent is negative.

### In Algebra what is exponent?

One way to view the exponent, especially when it is a natural number, is how many times something need to be multiplied by itself. So 4^5 has exponent 5 and base 4 and it means 4 multiplied by itself 5 times, ie 4x4x4x4x4 We can then extent this to negative integers and to an exponent of zero and then to rational exponents. More on that if you want to know.

### How do you calculate the number of factors of a number?

List the prime factorization of the number by exponents. Remember that if a number does not have an exponent, the exponent "1" is implied. Add one to each exponent and multiply. That is the total number of factors. 2^3 x 3^2 = 72 4 x 3 = 12 72 has twelve factors. If there is only one prime factor, add one and there you are. 2^4 = 16 16 has five factors.

### What are the rules in changing scientific notation to standard notation and standard notation to scientific notation?

To convert a number to scientific notation, move the decimal point right or left to make the number greater than or equal to one but less than ten, and record the number of positions moved as a power of 10 - the exponent. That is, if the decimal point moves to the left by n positions, then the exponent is 10n. If the decimal point moved to the right by n positions, the exponent is…

### How do you multiply a base of 34 and a exponent of 0?

Actually, a base and exponent are not multiplied together. Rather, the exponent indicates the "power" of the base number, the number of times the base is to be multiplied by itself. For example the expression 23, where the base is 2 and the exponent is 3, represents the product of 3 2s; that is, 2 x 2 x 2, equaling 8. Powers of zero are a special case. By convention, and to support exponent operations…

### How do you type negative exponents into a calculator?

If your calculator is advanced, like the TI-84, there is an exponent button you can hit. Then, just Type negative and the exponent. If it is a simpler calculator, like a four-function calculator, there IS a way. By raising a number to a negative exponent, you are saying that one is being divided by that number to the positive version of that power. Ex: 5^-8 = 1/(5^8). To do this, divide one by the base…

### How do you convert decimal to binary of real values?

This is the Binary32 format from IEEE-754-2008. To convert a decimal to binary real start by checking for zero. If so, the answer is all zeroes. Then record the sign and make the number positive. Then create an exponent with an initial value of 127. Iteratively multiply or divide the number by two, while decrementing or incrementing the exponent, until the number is greater than or equal to 1, and less than 2. Throw away…

### What is 0.1 as a negative exponent?

Anything to the power of a negative number is equal to one divided that "anything" raised to the positive value of the exponent. For example: a-b = 1/ ab So you can think of this by expressing the number as a fraction. Consider, what is 0.1 as a fraction? The answer is 1/10. This means that when expressed as an exponent, it would be 10-1.
