My apologies I was using the wrong terminology.  I am trying to identify different parts of the expression  2x + 4y2. namely the 4y2 section, where the 2 at the end of the expression is an exponent (superscript).  It is possible that the 2 could also be a subscript in a different expression.

This part of the expression is displayed in a rich textbox and each character in it is assigned to an element in a string array using string.split().   I am attempting to writing a function to identify the different elements in the array (coefficient, variable and operator).  

I have identified everything except for the 2 and do not know how to proceed.

thanks for your time.

I think you can check for the previous token and if that is a character (y in this case) then assume it to be exponent.

yes that would work but only if the previous token was a variable.  but this answer is the closest I found.
