# Positive Exponents

- Positive exponents
- Multiply by the same factor more than once. Show the repeated factor using exponential form, where the base is the repeated factor, and the exponent tells the number of repetitions.

- Example 1:
- 5 × 5 × 5 = 5
^{3} - Multiply by the number 5 three times, so 5 is the base, the repeated times 3 is the exponent.

- Example 2:
- 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 × 10 = 10
^{5} - Multiply by the number 10 five times, so 10 is the base, the repeated times 5 is the exponent.

- Zero as a exponent
- Any number to the zero power is one.

- Example:
- 1
^{0}= 1 - 2
^{0}= 1 - 10
^{0}= 1 - 100
^{0}= 1 - 500
^{0}= 1
