How do I make a superscript in Android Studio?

I have a button that says "What is the derivative of x^2?" and I want it to have a "2" superscript so it doesn't look ugly with the carrot symbol.

Michael;

You can try something along the lines of:

((TextView)findViewById(R.id.text)).setText(Html.fromHtml("X<sup>2</sup>"));
