The exponents are the numbers or variables which are raised to either constants or variables. Exponentiation of a variable is defined as its repeated multiplication. The number of times a number or variable is multiplied to itself is raised as its power and is called exponent. Exponents are illustrated in the following figure:

Exponent are defined as:**$x^{y}$ = x * x * x *.....* x (y times)**

Multiplying Exponents**In order to multiply two exponents, following properties of exponents are to be used :**

- When two exponents on the same base are multiplied together, their exponents are added on the same base, such as :
**$x^{m}.x^{n}=x^{m+n}$** - When exponent is raised to another exponents, the exponent are multiplied on the given base, i.e.
**$(x^{m})^{n}=x^{(mn)}$** - When same exponents on different base are multiplied together, their bases are multiplied and raised by given exponent, such as :
**$x^{m}.y^{m}=(xy)^{m}$**

Let us understand above rules with the help of examples.

= $(3*2)^{2}$

= $6^{2}$

= 36

= $-6.a^{(2+1+3)}.b^{(1+1+5)}.c.c^{4}$

= $-6a^{6}b^{7}c^{(1+4)}$

= $-6a^{6}b^{7}c^{5}$
