Question from Kim, a parent:

Complete the following:

2 to the power of 4= 2 to the power of 3= 2 to the power of 2= 2 to the power of 1=

If the pattern continues, 2 to the power of 0 =

Thanks

Hi Kim,

2 to the power of 4 = 2^{4} = 16 2 to the power of 3 = 2^{3} = 8 2 to the power of 2 = 2^{2} = 4 2 to the power of 1 = 2^{1} = 2

The pattern I see in the numbers 16, 8, 4, 2 is that each number is half the previous number.
