The exponent was there from my first post! Don't you understand the following terminology?<quoted text>

Chimney, why do you insist on being so stupid? I noticed you finally snuck in an exponent.

2^3 MEANS "two raised the the third power".

You do know what "to the power of" means right? As in "ten to the power of three = a thousand?

They are all exponential expressions.

If you check my original post #114,506

“65m/521 = 124,760 halvings (1/2^124,760)which would have long ago left less than "1 base" intact even in a sample the size of the earth!”

That means one over (2 to the power of 124,760).

That’s an exponent.

Your apology is accepted in advance.
