Work Step by Step

We are given the expression $9\times2^{5}$. Recall that an exponential expression consists of a factor, known as the base, and an exponent. The number of times that the base is multiplied is indicated by the value of the exponent. Therefore, $2$ is the base of the exponent 5. Multiplied out, $9\times2^{5}=9\times(2\times 2\times 2\times 2\times 2)$
