Powers of literal numbers are the repeated product of a number with itself is written in the exponential form.

**For example:**

3 × 3 × 3 = 3

3 × 3 × 3 × 3 × 3 = 3

Since a literal number represent a number.

Therefore, the repeated product of a number with itself in the exponential form is also applicable to literals.

Thus, if a is a literal, then we write

a × a × a = a

a × a × a × a × a = a

Also, we write

7 × a × a × a × a = 7a

4 × a × a × b × b × c × c = 4a

3 × a × a × b × b × b × c × c × c × c as 3a

We read a

Similarly, a

In a

Similarly, in a

It is very clear from the above discussion that the exponent in a power
of a literal indicates the number of times the literal exponent has been
multiplied by itself.

Thus, we have

a

Conventionally, for any literal a, a

i.e., a

Also, we write

a × a × a × b × b = a

7 × a × a × a × a × a = 7a

7 × a × a × a × b × b = 7a

These are the examples of powers of literal numbers.
