Seven cubed is seven to the third power or 7 x 7 x 7.
five squared is five to the second power or 5 x 5.

It seems to me that the question is about interpreting "7 cubed" as 7^3. We use "cubed" because that is what we need to do to find the volume of a cube of edge length 7. We "square" a number to find the area of a square of the given edge length. "5 squared" is 5^2.
