# Thread: Finding the base of an exponent

1. ## Finding the base of an exponent

Question solved guys..... I hate my Calculator

2. Trial and error is one way

$1^6= 1$
$2^6= 64$
$3^6 = \dots$

Thanks in advance for the responses
here's a hint ...

$729 = 9^3$

4. sorry I'm not catching onto your hint. Ps, the base is actually a percent, it's for a probability question.
