How To Write X Squared In Google Slides

Google Slides is a versatile tool that allows you to express a wide range of mathematical and scientific concepts, including the notation for squares. In this post, we will explore the process used to denote ‘x squared’ in Google Slides.

Step 1: Open Google Slides

The first step is to open up your Google Slides presentation. If you do not already have a presentation, create a new one by heading to the Google Slides website and selecting “New Presentation”.

Step 2: Navigate to the Correct Slide

Once you have your presentation open, navigate to the slide where you want to write ‘x squared’.

Step 3: Select the Text Box Tool

In the toolbar at the top of the screen, click on the ‘Text Box’ tool. This will allow you to create a new text box wherever you want on the slide.

Step 4: Write ‘x’

Click where you want the ‘x’ to appear on the slide and type ‘x’.

Step 5: Insert a Superscript 2

After you have written ‘x’, you will need to insert a superscript 2 to denote ‘squared’. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Select the ‘x’ that you just wrote.
  • Click on the ‘Format’ tab in the toolbar at the top of the screen.
  • Hover over ‘Text’ and then over ‘Size’.
  • Click on ‘Superscript’.

Once you have done this, a small 2 should appear at the top right of the ‘x’, denoting ‘x squared’.


With these steps, you can easily write ‘x squared’ in Google Slides. This is just one of the many mathematical expressions you can write in this versatile tool. Google Slides’ mathematical notation capabilities make it a great tool for teachers, students, and professionals in scientific or mathematical fields.
