Answer:

#16# can be expressed in exponential form in several ways...

Explanation:

#16# can be expressed in exponential form as #2^4# or #4^2# or even #16^1#

If you allow negative or irrational numbers then there are other possibilities too. If you allow rational exponents then you can also include #8^(4/3)# and infinitely many other possibilities.
