When a number is expressed in exponential notation, it is referred to as a base since it may be multiplied by itself. The number to be multiplied and a superscript number to the right of it, indicating how many times it should be multiplied by itself, make up exponential notation.
The quantity is referred to as a factor when the multiplication operation is fully expressed in writing. When the equation is expressed in this way, the number may also be thought of as a multiplier or multiplicand.
A square is the result of multiplying an integer by itself. A power of that number is the result of repeatedly multiplying a number by itself. The square root of the product is the number that is being multiplied by itself when it is expressed as the product of that multiplication.
