# Which Mathematical Operator Is Used to Raise Five to the Second Power?

## Question: Which mathematical operator is used to raise five to the second power?

The exponent of a number shows how many times the number is multiplied by itself

## Answer: ' **^** ' is the mathematical operator is used to raise five to the second power. It can be written as 5^2

Here 5 is called the base while 2 is called the exponent or power

## Explanation:

The notation (x)^n is read as "x to the power of n"

Thus, 5^2 will be read as "5 raised to the power of 2"

### Hence, ' **^ **' is the mathematical operator is used to raise five to the second power
