Answer:

#36# or #6^2#

Here's how I did it:

Explanation:

#6# squared means #6^2#.

Be careful! "Squared" or "to the power of two" does not mean times 2!

Instead, it means multiplying itself by itself.

Therefore, #6^2 = 6 * 6 = 36#

Hope this helps!

You would write #6^2# because a square is a number to the exponent #2#.

The solution would be #36# because a number to an exponent #n# is equal to the number multiplied by itself #n# times. Thus, #6^2 =6*6=36#.
