I will guess that the exercises are as follows:






...and that the instructions were something like "simplify".

The "little 2 up in the corner" is called an "exponent". To learn what these are and how they work, please try this lesson. Also please look at the lessons on the order of operations and square roots.

Once you have learned the basic terms and techniques, please attempt the exercises. If you get stuck, you can then reply with a clear listing of your efforts so far, even if you think they are wrong. For instance, you would start, in exercise (2), by showing what you got when you added 10 and 15. Thank you! :wink:
