Power Word Problems Worksheets
How to Solve Word Problems That Have Exponents? When you're dealing with exponents (powers), the margin of error becomes quite less. More so in the case of word problems. Today, let us discuss how we can solve these problems with an example and complete it one step at a time. Adam is a high-rise window washer and has a task to wash 10 rows of windows, while each row consists of 10 windows. Your task is to find how many windows are there combined in the two-section, and write it in the form of exponents. Now, if we consider the multiplication aspect of it, you know that 10 windows each row will have a total of 10 x 10 windows. However, if you have to write in exponential form, you can write 102, since there are two 10s present there.
