Evaluate two raised to the power of three.

Two raised to the power of three is written two with a superscript three after it. We know that raising any number to the power three means cubing it and that cubing any number involves multiplying the number by itself then itself again. Two cubed is equal to two multiplied by two multiplied by two. As multiplication is commutative and associative, we can multiply these numbers in any order. But for this example, we will work from left to right. Two multiplied by two is equal to four, so we’re left with four multiplied by two. As four multiplied by two is equal to eight, we know that two cubed or two raised to the power of three is equal to eight.
