# How do you simplify (10^{4} )^{2}?

Apr 27, 2018

$100000000$ (8 zeroes)

#### Explanation:

${\left({10}^{4}\right)}^{2}$

When you do an exponent to an exponent, that means you multiply the two exponents.

So this becomes:
${10}^{4 \cdot 2}$

Now simplify:
${10}^{8}$

And ${10}^{8}$ means you multiply $10$ by itself $8$ times, so now it has $8$ zeroes:
$100000000$

Hope this helps!
