2 to the power of 0 to 29 |

The successive

**powers of two from 0 to 29**are presented in the table above. The table of powers of the number 2 begins with the exponent zero. Any number to the zero power is equal to one. Therefore,

**2 to the power of 0 is equal to 1**. Any number to the first power is equal to itself. Therefore,

**2 to the power of 1 is equal to 2**.

If this table is not enough for someone, then you can look at another one, where the powers of the number 2 are presented up to the 100th power.

2 to the power of 0 to 49 |

2 to the power of 50 to 69 |

2 to the power of 70 to 89 |

2 to the power of 90 to 100 |

I hope programmers will like these tables of powers of the number 2 from 0 to 100. Mathematicians love to stick all sorts of nasty things anywhere. As a worthy student, I could not resist inserting 2 to the power “pi” and 2 to the power “e” into the table. Perhaps one of the child prodigies will find this useful. And now a little piece of theory.

Two to the second power means that the number two must be multiplied by itself. Therefore, 2 to the power of 2 or 2 squared equals four.

## 2^{2} = 2 x 2 = 4

In general, the exponent shows how many identical numbers are multiplied together. So, two to the third power or 2 cubed means that three 2s are multiplied at the same time and this equals eight:

## 2^{3} = 2 x 2 x 2 = 8

Two to the fourth power is equal to four twos multiplied:

## 2^{4} = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16

This table of successive powers of the number 2 is very often used in programming, since it uses the binary number system.
