10^2 = ten squared 10^6 = ten to the power of six or ten to the sixth power 3^4 = three to the fourth or three to the power of four 10^6 = ten to the negative sixth
One third One and one fourth or One and a quarter

No, you have it backwards.
10^6 = 10x10x10x10x10x10 = 1,000,000 = ten to the sixth 3^4 = 3x3x3x3 (there need to be FOUR 3's) = three to the power of four, or three to the fourth
10 ^ 6 = ten to the negative sixth =.000001

What are quantifers and in which situations are they used?  Is the word 'mingy' popular?
