If I have log(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); _{a}b = c, what is the term for the value b? I know that a is the base and c is the exponent, but I can't think of what b is called! While I am at it, in a^{b}= c, what exactly is c called? The power? Would that make b from the previous example the power as well? I have a feeling that it is not called power since power is sometimes used for exponent.
