Learn and know what is the **exponent meaning** in mathematics and also know why we should learn this concept. In the middle class maths we get this exponent concept which has a great importance.

Exponent is also called as power or index. Whatever may be the name, the meaning is same. The main use of learning exponents is to write a very big number or a larger number in a simple way. So now we will see what is the **meaning of exponent**. We also learn how to write large numbers in the short or simple form.

**Exponent meaning as follows:**

If we want to multiply 6, 2 and 3, what we do? We multiply like this 6 x 2 x 3 = 36. But in some cases we may need to multiply the same numbers. For example, 3, 3, 3, 3 and 3. Five 3’s we need to multiply. Instead of multiplying and writing its value we can write as { 3 }^{ 5 } and said as exponential form of 3 x 3 x 3 x3 x 3. In this notation, 3 we call it as the base and 5 we call it as the exponent. I think now exponent meaning is clear.

Generally exponent says that how many times base should be multiplied. Let us take a example, in { b }^{ c } base is “*b*” and exponent is “*c*”. Here the meaning is “*b*” should be multiplied “*c*” times.

In the short form 6 x 6 x6 is written as { 6 }^{ 3 } , where 6 is base and 3 is exponent.

If { 9 }^{ 4 } is given the meaning is 9 is multiplied 4 times i.e. 9 x 9 x 9 x 9.
