...written ; thus a is the same as a1. It is evident then, that to Jind the power of any number, it it **necessary to multiply this number by itself as many times less one, as there are units in** tlie exponent of the power. 25. As the exponent denotes the number of equal factors, which form the... | |

...&c. The number which denotes the power of any quantity is called the exponent of this quantity. When **the exponent is equal to unity it is not written ;...quantities as factors ; it follows that the expression** a° in which a is five times a factor, multiplied by a3, in which a is three times a factor, ought... | |

...V 222. To Raise Surds to any Power. To raise any quantity to any power, we have only to multiply it **by itself, as many times, less one, as there are units in the exponent of the** required power. Thus, (a2)5=a2Xa2Xa2Xa2xa!!=ai!x5=a1°. Hence, in simple quantities, the power is obtained... | |

...XXXIV. POWERS OF MONOMIALS. ART. lO'J. Any power of a quantity is found by multiplying that quantity **by itself as many times, less one, as there are units in the exponent of the power.** The second power of a or a1 is a . a = a1 + l = a2, (Art. 30) ; this is the same as a1 x 2. The third... | |
