Assuming that "n" is a positive integer, it means that you multiply the number 5 repeatedly with itself - the number 5, in this case, appears a total of "n" times as a factor. For example, if n = 4, 5n = 54 = 5 x 5 x 5 x 5. That is, the number 5 appears 4 times as a factor.

What does exponet mean in math terms?

Nothing: there is no such word. However, an exponent is another trm for power. an is a short way of writing a*a*...*a where the multiplication is carried out n times. In this case, n is the exponent or power and an is "a to the nth power", or less commonly "a to the nth exponent" or in the shortened form "a to the nth". Some exponenets have special names: 2 is squared, 3 is cubed. Exponents need not be integers or positive, but their meaning and use is less obvious.
