I am trying to do Learn Python 3 and I am confused on the exponents part.

https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-python-3/lessons/python-hello-world/exercises/exponents

The part I am confused about is “Your 6x6 quilts have taken off so well, 6 people have each requested 6 quilts. Print out how many tiles you would need to make 6 quilts apiece for 6 people.” I don’t get how the answer is 6 ** 4. If you get one 6x6 tile with 6 ** 2, how is 6 ** 4 the answer?

To my understanding exponents work like this: 6 ** 2 = 6 * 6 = 36. So using that same knowledge 6 ** 4 is 6 * 6 * 6 * 6. Wouldn’t that just make two quilts??
