Enter the first power and the power that power is raised to in order to calculate the power of a power.
Power of a Power Formula
The following formula is used to calculate the power of a power.
A = B ^ X^ Y
- Where A is the solution
- B is the base
- X is the first power
- Y is the second power
Power of a Power Definition
A power of a power is defined as on exponent raised to another exponent.
Power of a Power Example
How to calculate a power of a power?
- First, determine the base number.
This is the base number being raised to the powers. We will say this is 5 for this example.
- Next, determine the first power.
For this example the first power is 2.
- Next, determine the second power.
The second power is also 2.
- Finally, calculate the power of the power.
Using the equation above we find the value to be 5^2^2 = 625.
Raising a power to a power is the process of raising a base number to 1 power then another power.
