Q:
# What is 25 to the Power of 3?

Accepted Solution

A:

Solution: 25 to the Power of 3 is equal to 15625
Methods
Step-by-step: finding 25 to the power of 3
The first step is to understand what it means when a number has an exponent. The βpowerβ of a number indicates how many times the base would be multiplied by itself to reach the correct value.
The second step is to write the number in the base-exponent form, and lastly calculate what the final result would be. Consider the example of 2 to the power of 4: in exponent form that would be
2
4
2^4
2 4
. To solve this, we need to multiply the base, 2 by itself, 4 times -
2
β
2
β
2
β
2
2\cdot2\cdot2\cdot2
2 β
2 β
2 β
2
= 16. So
2
4
=
16
2^4 = 16
2 4 = 16
.
So re-applying these steps to our particular problem, we first convert our word problem to a base-exponent form of:
2
5
3
25^{3}
2 5 3
To simplify this, all that is needed is to multiply it out:
25 x 25 x 25 = 15625
Therefore, 25 to the power of 3 is 15625.
