3 I NTEGER E XPONENTS Exponential Notation ᭤ Rules for Working with Exponents ᭤ Scientific Notation In this section we review the rules for working with exponent notation. We also see how exponents can be used to represent very large and very small numbers. ▼ Exponential Notation A product of identical numbers is usually written in exponential notation. For example, 5 # 5 # 5 is written as 53. In general, we have the following definition. EXPONENTIAL NOTATION If a is any real number and n is a positive integer, then the nth power of a is an ϭ a # a # .
