 exponentiation Explanation:Hi Jennifer From the website below: In mathematics, exponentiation is a process of repeated multiplication, in much the same way that multiplication is a process of repeated addition. For example, 34 equals 3×3×3×3 equals 81. Here, 3 is the base, 4 is the exponent (written as a superscript), and 81 is 3 raised to the 4th power.... Good luck Elena
