Squared implies exponent = 2.
A squared number has an exponent of 2. So x squared = x2
8^2 = 64 The exponent is 2
When the base is squared.
50 squared is 50^2
if there is something like 4x^2, then the 4 is the coefficient. It is the coefficient of the X. The squared part is the exponent. If something is just 2x, then the 2 is the exponent. It is the known number, the constant that is multiplied times the X.
10 squared. 10^2
It means that the exponent is 2.
The reason you use 2 for the exponent when saying a number squared is because you are taking the number with the exponent of 2 and multiplying it by itself. 2^2 = 4 since 2 x 2 = 4. After squared is cubed for an exponent of 3, 2^3 = 8, since 2 x 2 x 2 = 8.
They're the same thing. The 2 in squared inches is an exponent.
the exponent is 2, expressed as twenty, squared or 20 X 20.
When the exponent on the number is 2, that means that it's squared. i.e. 42= four squared which is equal to sixteen.
