Exponentiation - math word problems

If n is a positive integer and x is any real number, then x^n corresponds to repeated multiplication x^n=x×x×⋯×x (n times). We can call this “x raised to the power of n,” “x to the power of n,” or simply “x to the n.” Here, x is the base, and n is the exponent or the power.
