Lets refer back to math basics. What is an exponent in laymants terms? For whole numbers, it's how many times you will repeatedly multiply the number. Example: 5 ^ 2 = 5 * 5 = 25 2 ^ 4 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 = 16 Where ^ is to the exponent of, and * is to multiply. Decimals get a bit trickier, ignore them for now. Example: 4 ^ (1/2) = 2. So, in python you use x**a to take x to the exponent of a. so: 2 ** 4 = 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 = 16 Or 5 ** 2 = 5 * 5 = 25
