Division: Exponent Rules . . . dividing zero exponents, integer exponents, negative exponents, fractional exponents, decimal exponents

Introduction to Exponents :

An exponent is a shorthand notation which tells how many times a number (or expression) is multiplied by itself.

For example, the number 2 raised to the 3rd power means that the number two is multiplied by itself three times:

The two in the expression is called the base, and the 3 is called the exponent (or power).
