QUESTION: 3

### Find the value of x, if 32 = 2x.

Solution:

Factorisation of 32 is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2
32 = 25
X = 5

QUESTION: 4

The repeated factor in an exponential expression is called ____.

Solution:

QUESTION: 5

A group of students were given an assignment to collect different types of leaves. The group collected32 types of leaves. Represent the number of leaves collected in the form of exponential expression with its base being indivisible.

Solution:

25 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2

2 x 2 = 4

4 x 2 = 8

8 x 2 = 16

16 x 2 = 32

QUESTION: 6

Find the value of the expression a2 for a = 10.

Solution:

Multiply 10 twice i.e 10 × 10 because they asked 'a' to the power 2 . so multiply by twice, the solution is 100 .

QUESTION: 7

Evaluate the exponential expression (−b)× (−b)5, for b = 4.

Solution:

(-b)4= (-44) =(-4 × -4) × (-4 × -4)

=16×16 (as -×-=+) =256

(-b)5=1024

so, -1024 × 256 = -262144

QUESTION: 8
