What is the difference btw exponent and power ..???

rnIf none then why the chptr's nme is "exponents and powers" ????

*exponent* and is written as a superscript. The exponent is also called the *power. *It means there is no difference between exponent and power. It's just two different ways to represent the same concept. There are many pairs of two words connected with word AND come together even they have same meaning. For example " Terrible and Awful". So traditionally, the chapter name is called "exponent and power".
