It is multiplication and more.

For instance, a^2 is a times a
a^3 is a times a times a, or a cubed.

Now it gets a little more fun.

a^(1/2) is the sqrt(a)

a^(1/3) is the cubrt(a)

a^(4/3) is the cubrt of a^4

neat.

like 2>2 is 4 and 2>3 is 8 because the first time you multiply you multiply by the original number???am i right ...sorry if its confusing???

You're right.

But be sure you use the correct signs.

2^2 = 4
2^3 = 8
