Power of literal quantities means when a quantity is multiplied by itself, any number of times, the product is called a power of that quantity. This product is expressed by writing the number of factors in it to the right of the quantity and slightly raised.

**For example:**

(ii) b × b × b has three factors so to express it we can write b × b × b = b

(iii) z × z × z × z × z × z × z has seven factors so to express it we can write z × z × z × z × z × z × z = z
