The ^2 means that you multiply the number twice.
In other words, 5 x 5
You are very welcome!
what is 5^2
5^2 means the same thing as 52 5^3 means 53 5^4 means 54 et cetera.
The name of the ^ symbol is "caret" - a caret indicates that the number following it is to be regarded as an exponent.
A caret is used when a keyboard doesn't provide the ability to move a number upward into exponential position.
sometimes I wonder if its all a troll, but this wondering is because people aren't really specific on the problem.
Are they confused on the ^ symbol?
or they just want a calculation? I mean, there is website is a calculator, and literally you will have to visit the calculator FIRST before going to forums.
