    Tomy,
    a con el 5 superescrito, por ejemplo, se dice "a to the fifth power"
    (Sorry, I don't know how to write a superscript on WordReference site. I tried to paste an example unsuccessfully.)
    Usamos ordinales para expresar la potencia.
    ¿Es lo que preguntabas?

    mas ejemplos:

    x to the second power
    y to the third power
    y to the nth power (a la x potencia = to the Nth power)
    N es el numero
    th indica ordinal

    hola, Gurseal: se puede decir únicamente (por ejemplo) "x to the third" o siempre hay que decir "x to the third power"? Gracias.
