Thanks, David!

I definitely learned something from your answer but I can't make it work from Pages, for example, by this method.

I'm reviewing algebra after many years on the Khan Academy website and it occasionally requires answers in the "to the power of" format. I'm trying to find a way that

**A)** types in the number in the correct format and

**B)** I guess, actually numerically represents that number. If that makes any sense, lol.
