If n is a natural number,
Bn = b b ………….
o Where b is the base and appears as a factor n times
o Bn is ead as the th powe of  o  to the th powe

thousandths, tens, ones etc)
Example: Write each number in expanded form
o 663 = (6 x 100) + (6 x 10) + (0 x 1)
= (6 x 102) + (6 x 101) + ( 0 x 100)) *b0 can also be written as 1 in every case

V <
One Ten
o V < vv
= (1 x 602) + (10 x 601) + (1+1) x 1
= (1 x 3600) + (10 x 60) + (2 x 1)
