# What is 6 to the 3rd power?

• Last Updated : 21 Sep, 2021

Exponents and powers are a method to express repeated multiplication of the same number. For eg- 7×7×7 can be written as 73 where 7 is the base and 3 is the exponent. It is most commonly used to express the powers of 10 to write a very large number in a convenient manner. For eg- 1000 can be written as 103.

### Laws of Exponents

• To multiply two exponential numbers with the same bases, the exponents are added and the base remains the same.
For eg- am × an = am+n.
• When the exponent has another exponent, the base remains the same but the powers are multiplied.
For eg- (am)n = am×n.
• To divide two exponential numbers with the same bases, the exponents are subtracted and the base remains the same.
For eg- am/an = am-n.

### What is a Power Notation?

Power notation is a method to express numbers that are very large or very small. For eg- 1000000000000 can be written as 1012 and 0.00000026 can be written as 2.6 × 10-7.

Steps to calculate the value of an exponential number:

• Write the number with its exponent.
• Multiply the number with itself for the number of times equal to its power.
• Make sure the calculation is correct.

### What is 6th to the 3rd power?

Solution:

Given that the number is 6 and the power is 3.

Write the number with its exponent.

63 = 6 × 6 × 6

63 = 216

Hence, the value of 6 to the 3rd power is 216.
