$8 = 2 \cdot 2 \cdot 2$ or ${2}^{3}$

#### Explanation:

I assume you are talking about prime factorization. Every number is made up of prime factors, so that you can write it as a product of it's prime factors.

A common method of finding a number's prime factors is by using a factor tree.

So; $8 = 2 \cdot 2 \cdot 2$
This is also written as ${2}^{3}$.
