Yes it does. It's just a shortened way of saying it.

Please use more descriptive thread titles for future threads, thanks
3. It means it is nearly teatime.

It works algebraically too: for you say "n to the m", not "n to the power (of) m".

It means it is nearly teatime.
If we accept that "teatime = 10^6", then, on Friday, what is the corresponding expression for 5^5?
