## What is the exponential number?

It is represented as a^{n}. Exponentiation corresponds to repeated multiplication of the base a, n times.

## How are exponential numbers calculated?

As an example, in the statement a^{n} where a=3 and n=2 then a^{n} = 3^{2} and this means multiplication of 3 by 2 times which can be calculated 3^{2} = 3 x 3 = 9.

When an exponent is 0, the result of the exponentiation of any base will always be 1. For example, 5^{0} = 1

When an exponent is 1, the base remains the same. For example, 7^{1} = 7.

## How are negative exponential numbers calculated?

If the power of an integer is negative, it is expressed rationally. For example, 2^{-3} = 1/2^{3} = 1/8.

If the exponent of a rational number is negative, the rational number at the base is reversed. For example, (3/4)^{-2} = (4/3)^{2} = (4 x 4) / 3 x 3 = 16 / 9

In exponential numbers, the function of the negative exponent is to invert the base number. Negative force does not affect the sign of the number in the base.
