bccspirit It's very easy 2**5 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 Or in simple words 2 raised to the power 5 we are multiplying two with the number itself 5 times. It's the easiest part of mathematics Other examples 1. 2**1 - 2 2. 2**2 - 2 × 2 3. 2**10 - 2 multiply with the number itself 10 times So 2ⁿ is 2 multiplied as many as the number itself contained in n. Exception - 2**0 is 1 because according to the laws of exponentiation any number raised to the power 0 returns the value 1.
