If you mean something like this: 54 then you multiply 5*5*5*5. The answer in this case would be 625. In any case with a number to a power, you multiply the number by itself however many times you have in the power. If it is just to the power of 2, you multiply it by itself twice. If it is to the power of 10, you multiply the number by itself 10 times. Most calculators (besides simple four-function calculators) have a button that allows you to input a number to a power and find the answer, which is much faster.
