** operator is used to raise a given number to a given power.
So, 2**2 is 2², which is 2 × 2 = 4
Similarly, 4**3 is 4³, which is 4 × 4 × 4 = 64.
So, here 2**5 means 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 = 32

I think you should have asked "what is '**' in python?" but not the answer🤔

2**5 == 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 * 2 == pow(2, 5) in Python

This is the same as
2*2*2*2*2 = 32

I am old, and math was a long time ago. So i am kind of a dummy in math now. Could you explain, in the most basic terms the ** and ^ to me. Like how a number is to the "power" of a number. The definition of this in the most "elementry" way. Thanks.
