### Is a number that can be expressed using an exponent?

Every number can be expressed using an exponent. You select a
base, b, which should be a positive real number. Suppose the number
is x.
If this number is negative, then its exponent form will have a
negative sign before it.
The absolute value of the number is converted to the exponent
form by solving x = b^y where y is the exponent. However, you need
to know about logarithms before you can do that (and this question
suggests that you have not yet progressed to that level of
mathematics).
