The first step is to understand what it means when a number has an exponent. The “power” of a number indicates how many times the base would be multiplied by itself to reach the correct value.

The second step is to write the number in the base-exponent form, and lastly calculate what the final result would be. Consider the example of 2 to the power of 4: in exponent form that would be

So re-applying these steps to our particular problem, we first convert our word problem to a base-exponent form of:

To simplify this, all that is needed is to multiply it out:

25 x 25 x 25 x 25 x ... (for a total of 10 times) = 95367431640625

Therefore, **25 to the power of 10 is 95367431640625.**
