#### Explanation:

A short hand method of writing repeated multiplication of a number is to express it in

#color(blue)"exponent form"# For example.

#2xx2 = 2^2" the "color(blue)(2) " in " color(blue)(2)^2" is called the base and the " 2" in the"2^color(red)(2)" the exponent"# also

#2xx2xx2xx2=2^4" and so on"#

#rArr=7xx7xx7xx7xx7=7^5" in exponential form"# The base is the value of the number being multiplied, in this case 7

and the exponent is the number of times, the number is being multiplied. In this case 5.
