Some questions on the GED math test will involve exponents and powers, so it is important the you understand the basics and how to solve them.

Exponents and powers are a way to show repeated multiplication. For example, 2^4 means the base of 2 is multiplied 4 times. In other words, 2^4 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 16.

Any number raised to the zero power is one. For example, 10^0 = 1 or 56^0 also equals one. An exception is zero raised to the zero power which is undefined.

Any number raised to the one power is itself. For example, 12^1 = 12.

GED math students need to know how to graph equations. Sometimes the equation will be written in the standard form, Ax +By = C where A, B, and C can be any number. Students can save time on their GED math test if they know how to solve and graph these equations quickly.

Students can download these free printable GED math worksheets to practice graphing linear equations in standard form.
