## Multiplying Exponents

#### Introduction

Multiplying exponents is quite straightforward. When the bases are the same, we simply add the first exponent to the second exponent.#### Terms

**Exponent**- The number of times to multiply the base.

**Base**- The number being multiplied.

## Lesson

To multiply exponents with the same base, we add all the exponents together. For example, if we are given , we add the exponents – 6+2=8 and we are left with or 256 (evaluated).
