1. $\mathrm{3}$ multiplied fifteen times is written as?

Ans:

$3$ Multiplied for fifteen times is written as

$3\times 3\times 3\times 3\times 3\ldots 15 times={{3}^{15}}$

Answer will be ${{3}^{15}}$

2. What is the base of the exponent ${{\mathrm{6}}^{\mathrm{9}}}$?

\begin{align} & \mathrm{(a)6} \\ & \mathrm{(b)2} \\ & \mathrm{(c)9} \\ & \mathrm{(d)None} \\ \end{align}

Ans:

The base of the exponent ${{6}^{9}}$ is $6$

3. Find the missing number ${{\mathrm{7}}^{\mathrm{5}}}\mathrm{=}\dfrac{\mathrm{1}}{{{\mathrm{7}}^{\square }}}$?

\begin{align} & \mathrm{(a)2} \\ & \mathrm{(b)-5} \\ & \mathrm{(c)1} \\ & \mathrm{(d)None} \\ \end{align}

Ans:

The missing number should be  $-5$

So the answer will be ${{7}^{5}}=\dfrac{1}{{{7}^{-5}}}$

4. Find the value of  ${{\left( {{\mathrm{5}}^{\mathrm{2}}} \right)}^{\mathrm{2}}}$

\begin{align} & \mathrm{(a)125} \\ & \mathrm{(b)625} \\ & \mathrm{(c)25} \\ & \mathrm{(d)0} \\ \end{align}

Ans:

The solution will be

\begin{align} & {{\left( {{5}^{2}} \right)}^{2}}={{5}^{4}} \\ & {{\left( {{5}^{2}} \right)}^{2}}=5\times 5\times 5\times 5 \\ & {{\left( {{5}^{2}} \right)}^{2}}=625 \\ \end{align}

5. Find the value of $\mathrm{x}$, when ${{\mathrm{2}}^{\mathrm{x}}}\mathrm{=}{{\mathrm{4}}^{\mathrm{4}}}$

\begin{align} & \mathrm{(a)x=6} \\ & \mathrm{(b)x=2} \\ & \mathrm{(c)x=8} \\ & \mathrm{(d)x=-5} \\ \end{align}

Ans:

The solution will be

${{2}^{x}}={{4}^{4}}$

\begin{align} & {{4}^{4}}={{\left( {{2}^{2}} \right)}^{4}} \\ & {{4}^{4}}={{2}^{8}} \\ \end{align}

${{2}^{x}}={{2}^{8}}$

$x=8$

So the answer will be $x=8$

6. Find the value of ${{\left( {{\mathrm{2}}^{\mathrm{11}}}\mathrm{+}{{\mathrm{6}}^{\mathrm{2}}}\mathrm{-}{{\mathrm{5}}^{\mathrm{1}}} \right)}^{\mathrm{0}}}$

### Class 8 Maths Exponents and Powers Important Questions

The Exponents and Powers Class 8 Important Questions are also available in the PDF format which students can download on their devices and access offline as per their convenient time. With these questions in hand, students will surely get a better conceptual understanding and learn how to divide their time into more important topics than the less significant ones. The questions are based on the topics that are outlined below.

## Here is the list of topics covered in Chapter 12 Exponents and Powers.

 Topic No Topic Name 12.1 Introduction 12.2 Powers with negative exponents 12.3 Laws of exponents 12.4 Use of exponents to express small numbers in standard form 12.4.1 Comparing very large and very small numbers

Now let us discuss each topic in detail.

### Topics in Class 8 Maths Chapter 12 Exponents and Powers

Exponents and Powers are fundamental concepts of Mathematics and are used to express very small or very large numbers in their standard forms. Some of the common terms used in this topic are:

• Power - The power of a number is expressed as xy, and it indicates how many times the number x has to be multiplied (which is y times in this example). In this expression “x” is called the base and “y” is called the exponent.

• Example of Power - 108, here the base is 10, and the exponent is 8. It is called as 10 raised to the power 8 and its value is given by multiplying 10 to itself 8 times i.e. 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 * 10 = 100000000.

• Negative Exponents - There could be a power that has a negative exponent. These negative exponents can be converted into positive ones by the following method:

1. 8-3 = (1/83), so we can say that for any non-negative integer x, x-m = 1/xm

• Laws of Exponents:

1. Multiplication of Powers That has the Same Base - If x is a non-zero integer then xa * xb = xa+b, where a and b are integers. For example 23 * 24 = 23+4 = 27.

2. Power of Power - If x is a non-zero integer then (xm)n = xmn, where m and n are integers. For example (23)4 = 23*4 = 212.

3. Multiplication of Powers That have Different Bases but the Same Exponent - If x and y are two non-zero integers then xa * ya = (x * y)a, where a is an integer. For example 22 * 32 = (2 * 3)2 = 62 = 36.

4. Division of Powers with the Same Base but Different Exponents - For a non-zero integer x, xa/xb = xa-b, where a and b are integers and a > b.

5. Any number raised to the power 0 is equal to 1, i.e. x0 = 1, where x is any non-zero integer.

6. Any non-zero integer raised to the power 1 is equal to the same integer, i.e. x1 = x.

7. 1/xn = x-n
