Is there a way to write things like a number squared, or cubed, or to the something or other power, using a regular keyboard?

My daughter has started nursing school and I am trying to help her with the math through the instant messenger and she sometimes gets confusing sending me a problem dealing with something squared, cubed, or other. Any suggestions?

When doing that you use ascii.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, we'll check it over and see if we can get the hang of it

OK Well I am not smart enough to figure it out.

How would you write 3 x 2 squared  or 6 to the tenth power x 45

In my experience a carrot (Shift of 6) or ^ is used to denote raising something to a power when using a regular keyboard.

So 2 squared would be 2^2.  6 to the tenth power would be 6^10

The carat symbol is what is generally used. The tutorial I posted mentions that. The ^ is found above the 6 on most US keyboards. So shift + 6 = ^.

^(1/2) == square root
^(1/3) equals cubed root
