# SSAT Upper Level Math : How to find the properties of an exponent

## Example Questions

### Example Question #21 : Expressions & Equations

What is  written as a multiplication problem?

Explanation:

When expanding an exponent, we multiply the base by itself for the number indicated by the exponential value.

In this case, our base number is  and our exponential value is . So we multiply  by itself  times.

Remember, the question asks us for the multiplication problem, not the answer to . Because of this,  is our correct answer.
