Answer:

Power of #2#, #10.5^2#, #110.25# square inches.

Explanation:

Area of a square:
#A=s^2#
As you can see, you square the side length to get the area, or raise it to the power of #2#. The side length is #10.5#, so you can write the area as #10.5^2#. #10.5^2 = 110.25#, so the area is #110.25# square inches.
