 Math Central Quandaries & Queries
 Question from Lily, a student: Hi! I was wondering, I was having a little issue understanding this one problem. It was "write 81 in exponential 2 different ways" and I already got 9(2) but I was wondering what the second one could be! Thanks! -Lily

Hi Lily,

Use the fact that $9 = 3^{2}.$
