# Negative Numbers with Exponents

Negative numbers are the numbers less than zero and they appear to left side of zero on the number line. Exponent can be defined as the power to which a number is being raised. It can also be explained as how many times a number is multiplied by itself. For example if it is given $3^{2}$ it means 3 is multiplied by 3 once. If it is given that $3^{3}$ then it implies that 3 is multiplied by 3 twice, that is $3\times 3\times 3$. There can be exponents of negative numbers just like there are exponent for positive numbers. Exponent of negative number will multiply the number by itself the number of times as the power is being given.
