if i'm not mistaken, it is an exponent, or a power. 

 

Here is the definition: a quantity representing the power to which a given number or expression is to be raised, usually expressed as a raised symbol beside the number or expression (e.g., 3 in 2^3 = 2 × 2 × 2).

You have got to be kidding!! You have 666^666 megamorons of stu.pid. That’s not a record on here but it’s close! It takes talent to have a score that high. How can you be that stu.pid?! Even Severoth knows this. That’s a major accomplishment for him, but he learned it somewhere and now he’s passing on to you. The wonders of the net never cease to amaze . . . . . . .

125x^6   =  125x6

 

As Severoth says......this is a representation of an exponent
