How to calculate a power of a power?

  1. First, determine the base number.

    This is the base number being raised to the powers. We will say this is 5 for this example.

  2. Next, determine the first power.

    For this example the first power is 2.

  3. Next, determine the second power.

    The second power is also 2.

  4. Finally, calculate the power of the power.

    Using the equation above we find the value to be 5^2^2 = 625.
