Powers and exponents are techniques used in mathematics, particularly algebra, to easily rewrite large multiplication problems. Power is a mathematical expression that can be used to specify how many times a number should be multiplied in a multiplication procedure. Exponent is often used interchangeably with power, although in a different sense. While power is used to denote the entire expression, the exponent is the superscript added above and to the right of any number’s base. In this article, you will discover what is 3 to the power of 4. How you can calculate the power of a number? How to type to the power of 4 on a keyboard and how to calculate power without a calculator.

To calculate the power of a number let’s take the example, of 5^{4}

Assume the base is 5 and the exponent is 4. To find the power of a number, multiply it by itself four times,

i.e., 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 = 625 (See Who Invented Math?)

**2. How can you Type to the Power of 4 on a Keyboard?**

To type exponent 4 of any number, you have to type the alt code 2074. Select the code and then press the Alt + X keys.

**3. What is 3 to the Power of 4?**

3 to the power of 4 is **81. **

3^{4 }=3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 81. (See What is Three Eighths as a Decimal?)

**4. What is 3 by the Power of 2?**

3 to the power 2 is **9**

3^{2 }= 3 × 3 = 9. (See What is i to the power of 3)

**5. How can you Write 3 to the Power of 5?**

Just like calculating 3 to the power of 4, 3 to the power of 5 will give **243.**

3^{5}= 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 243

**6. What is 4 as a Power of 2?**

4 to the power 2 is **16**

4^{2}= 4 × 4 = 16. Must read What is 0.12 Repeating as a Fraction?

**7. What is 3 by the Power of 8?**

3 to the power 8 is **6561**

3^{8}= 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 6561

**8. What is 3 by the Power of 9?**

Similar to 3 to the power of 4, 3 to the power of 9 is **19683**

3^{9}= 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 19683 (See What Is Algebra Used for In Real Life?)

**9. What is 10 the Power of 3?**

10 to the power 3 is **1000**

10^{3}= 10 × 10 × 10 = 1000. (See What is GCF of 24 and 32?)

Using exponents, you can multiply any integer by itself as many times as you desire.

The 2 in 8^{2} tells us to multiply 8 twice, therefore 8^{2} = 8 × 8 = **64**. (See What is the Very Last Number in the World?)

**11. How can you Calculate Power Without a Calculator?**

For example, from start to end, here is how you would solve 6^{3} without a calculator. Because the exponent is 3 and the base number is 6,

**Step 1**: Write: 6 6 6.

**Step 2**: Then, write: 6 × 6 × 6, putting multiplication signs between each base number.

**Step 3**: Then, subtract the first multiplication sign, or 6 × 6 = 36.

**Step 4**: Then, multiply 36 × 3 = **216** by the last multiplication sign.

**Step 5**: As a result, the solution is 6^{3} = **216**. (See How Calculator Works?)
