Working with powers of 10 can be easily visualized by adding a zero each time the power increases by one. Ten to the second power is 10 times 10, or 100. Ten to the third power is 10 times 10 times 10, which equals 1,000. Ten to the fourth power is 10,000. Ten to the fifth power is 100,000, and so on. In the above example, the number 10 is called the "base," and the number 6 is called the "power" or "exponent."
