9^{9}
I hate to be a spoilsport, but a mathematical notation isn't normally
considered a "number".
Two numbers would be two numbers, not a number and a notation.
So that "99" that someone had mentioned, actually would be
"two numbers", and the winner of the weekly grand prize.
Ehh, what?0

You mean that superscripting, standing for exponentiation, is a mathematical notation? Or that "99", though made from two digits, is one number, not two, so that from the two numbers "99" and "9", we could form 99^{9}, which is even larger than 9^{9}?

Interesting, but I still think Phil is right. She asked how to WRITE a number using two numbers....9^9 is just another way of writing 387420489.
So, this is my first riddle...when do we get to know the answer?0

You guys are starting to sound like ME for crying out loud!
It called for "just two numbers". Both numbers are the number 9.
One BIG one, one little one.9^{9}
And part 2, the answer, is on Monday
(or you can look it up which I did AFTER I wrote my answer)

That's why it's a riddle. I thought that too, then I thought "hey! wait a minute, why not 9 to the 9th power?" It used 2 numbers and it expresses a larger number.

Imagine us on a jury...We'd never reach a conclusion.
There are many hair splitting technicalities as far as this (and many other) riddles go. Probably any riddle has a loop hope.
I just meant the both of the digits I put down are considered numbers. The way I arranged them and the size I gave them give them a high value.
That's how I see it in my own little world here in NY Sate where it's 20 degree out, in the sun, with no wind....
Maybe I have brain freeze?0 
but isn't 9 to the ninth using the SAME number,PhillieG said:Kathie

the number 9? so maybe answer is 9 to the 8th or 8 to the 9th, whichever is higher?Just as cold in Brooklyn as it is upstate, I think....steve0
