Textbook Problem

Compare Exponential Expressions

a. How many times as large is 3 ( 3 3 ) than ( 3 3 ) 3 ?

b. How many times as large is 4 ( 4 4 ) than ( 4 4 ) 4 ? Note: Most calculators will not display the answer to this problem because it is too large. However, the answer can be determined in exponential form by applying the following properties of exponents.

( a m ) n = a m n a n d a m a n = a m n
