Answer:

500

Explanation:

5 is 5
#10^2# is 100

#5xx100=500#

#10^2# is just 1 with 2 zeros to the right of 1, the amount of zeros that are to the right of 1 are equal to the exponent the right of 10 in #10^x#
#x# = the amount of zeros to the right of 1 when multiplying any number by 10 with an exponent.
In this case #x# = 2 so #10^2=100.#

#5xx10^2=5xx100=500#
