It is nothing serious. I have tried multiple methods. But I do not know how to work out the problem. It was asked in the math class by the teacher for fun. However, I still cannot crack it. Thats why I am wondering anyone here will be able to solve it. Thus, I did not put up my attempts.

I would recommend you to start by doing a x versus y graph, in which x represents the first number and y represents the second number (or the other way around).
After that, a pattern would be evident to you.

Thank you. I will use the hidden gem you have given me. Thank you!

Reconsidering my advice; a graph will result in too small resolution to arrive to any conclusions.
Let's wait for better inputs.

I have very little patience for these types of puzzles. ##5^1=5 \checkmark, 5^2=25 \checkmark, 5^3=125 \checkmark, 5^4=625 \ne 1880##. That's where I stop.
