What is Exponential Form?

Exponential form is an easier way of writing a number that can be divided by the same number a certain amount of times. For example, the number "4" can be divided by the number "2" twice. Therefore it is also equal to 2x2. In exponential form, this is written as 2^2. The "^" symbol is used to represent the preceding number "being raised" to the proceeding number.
