# How To Do Exponents in Google Docs

Google Docs is an awesome tool for students and professionals, but it can be hard to do exponents. A writing exponent is a mathematical expression that refers to how often a number is multiplied on its own.

The format in the exponents has been very small letters written just above the line of text. Different exponent types may be positive exponents, negative exponents, rational exponents.

For example, the shortcut to multiplying three times the number 3 is displayed as in (3)(3)(3) = 33. This process of using exponents is called “raising to a power” or “power of“.
