## Sagot :

1.

**Identify the repetition of the base number**: Observe that the number 3 is repeatedly multiplied by itself.

2.

**Count the number of times the base appears**: Determine how many times the number 3 appears in the multiplication expression. Here, it appears 12 times.

3.

**Form the exponential expression**:

- The base (number being multiplied) is 3.

- The exponent (number of times the base is multiplied by itself) is 12.

Putting this information together, you would write the expression as [tex]\(3^{12}\)[/tex].

Thus:

- Statement (A) suggests writing [tex]\(12^3\)[/tex], which is incorrect.

- Statement (B) suggests using 12 as the base and 3 as the exponent, which is incorrect.

- Statement (C) suggests writing [tex]\(3^{12}\)[/tex], which is correct.

- Statement (D) suggests using 3 as the base and 12 as the exponent, which is correct.

Therefore, the correct choices are C and D.
