# Positive Exponents

In this video, we are going to look at how to simplify numbers raised to positive exponents.
For example:
To simplify the following:
$2^4$
we have to multiply the 2 by itself, 4 times which would simplify to:
$2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2=16$

Other examples:

$x^3=x \times x \times x$
$3^4=3 \times 3 \times 3 \times 3=81$
