$$x^2=x \times x$$

But other than that it can equal anything. It would depend on the rest of the question.

This could be the formula for the area of a square.

If the side length is x then area = x squared units squared

This would be a formula

$$$Area = x^2$\\\\

If the side length is 6 cm then x=6 and\\

$Area = 6^2 = 36cm^2$\\\\

If the side length is 4inches then x=4 and\\

$Area = 4^2 = 16inches^2$\\\\

etc\\

Do you get the idea on how this might be useful?$$
