To multiply exponents you basically add them like so...
if it was 7 to the power of 2 and 7 to the power of 6 you just add them together and u would get 7 to the power of 8

When you raise a power to a power what do you do with the exponents?
Asked in Math and Arithmetic
How do you raise a power to a power?
The rule is that you multiply the exponents. So if I have 2 squared and I want to raise it to the third power, you multiply the 2x3=6. When you multiply powers you add the exponents. When you raise exponents to a power you multiply. This works for rational exponents which can be used to represent roots as well.
