An exponent is the power that a number is raised to. For

instance, in the expression 3^2 ("three squared"), 2 is the

"exponent" and 3 is the "base." A positive exponent just means that

the power is a positive number. For instance, the following

expression does not involve a positive exponent: 3^(-2). Horses
