Interestingly, I started-out puzzling your question because Thunderbird
(email client) displayed the "Not 5..." with the power as a superscript.
It was only when I hit Reply that I saw the text as "Not 5 circumflex
2". Can only guess what you will see (above).
Please clarify "write" and "produce". Do you want to know:
- how to compute numbers raised to some power, and
- how to compute values expressed as numerator and denominator (fractions)
or
- how to display formulae (including powers and/or fractions) as text in
a convenient manner
