7 to the power of 2 is 49.

Any number to the power of 2 is multiplying that number by itself twice.

So that would be 7*7, which is 49.

So yes, 7^2 is 49.

Yes, 49 is the correct answer.

For this specific problem, you are multiplying: 7x7=49

For say \(5^8\) what you do is multiply 5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5= 390,625

The little number shows how many times you multiply and the big number shows what you are multiplying.

yes, the answer to 7^{2} is equal to 49 and I'll tell you how.

you have 7^{2} and you convert it into 7*7 and you get 49 which is the answer to 7^{2}.
