### There are how many kinds of exponents?

• A.

One

• B.

Two

• C.

Three

• D.

Five

B. Two
Explanation
The question asks how many kinds of exponents there are. The answer is two because there are two main types of exponents: positive and negative. Positive exponents indicate multiplication, while negative exponents indicate division. So, there are two kinds of exponents based on their mathematical operations.

### Positive Exponents is sub-topic under ...

• A.

Decimals

• B.

Equations

• C.

Exponents

• D.

Ratio

C. Exponents
Explanation
The sub-topic "Positive Exponents" falls under the broader topic of "Exponents". Exponents involve raising a number to a certain power, and positive exponents specifically refer to when the power is a positive integer. This sub-topic would cover concepts such as multiplying numbers with positive exponents, dividing numbers with positive exponents, and simplifying expressions with positive exponents.

### Mathematics is usually taught in ....

• A.

School

• B.

Church

• C.

Mosque

• D.

Restaurant

A. School
Explanation
Mathematics is usually taught in school because it is a fundamental subject that provides a foundation for many other fields of study. Schools have dedicated math teachers and resources to effectively teach and assess students' mathematical skills and knowledge. Additionally, schools provide a structured learning environment where students can engage in math-related activities, such as problem-solving and group discussions, to enhance their understanding of mathematical concepts. Teaching mathematics in school ensures that students receive a comprehensive education and develop the necessary skills for future academic and professional pursuits.

### Exponents are also called

• A.

Powers

• B.

Ratios

• C.

Decimals

• D.

Roots

A. Powers
Explanation
Exponents are also called powers because they represent the number of times a base number is multiplied by itself. In other words, an exponent tells us how many times to multiply the base number. For example, in the expression 2^3, the base number is 2 and the exponent is 3. This means that we need to multiply 2 by itself three times: 2 x 2 x 2 = 8. So, powers and exponents are interchangeable terms used to describe this mathematical concept.

### Mathematics is studied by ....

• A.

Humans

• B.

Toys

• C.

Animals

• D.

Aliens

A. Humans
Explanation
Mathematics is a subject that is studied and understood by humans. It involves the use of logical reasoning, problem-solving skills, and mathematical concepts that are specifically designed for human cognition. While toys may be used to teach basic mathematical concepts to young children, animals and aliens do not possess the cognitive abilities to comprehend and study mathematics as humans do. Therefore, the correct answer is humans.
