25 Questions | Total Attempts: 36  Settings  The symbol '^' means "to the power of" so that B2 is written as B^2. The '/' symbol is a fraction bar, so that the fraction "two-thirds" is written 2 / 3. Remember, the exponent only belongs to the number it is directly attached to. In the term 7a^3 b^4 the exponent 3 only goes with the 'a'
