# What does it mean a number to the 5th or 6th power mean?

It means that the number is multiplied by itself that many times.

If we wrote the quoted statement as a mathematical expression:

Translating this abstract explanation into a more concrete example:

The special conditions here are fractional/decimal exponents and zero.

An exponent of zero always results in 1:

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
