Just adding on, elements such as Carbon would have hybridization 2sp^2 and sp^2. Hydrogen would be 1s. Like mentioned above, the one with the 2 in front is just more specific and it allows you to figure out which element is being hybridized.

I would recommend including the coefficient in the front just to be safe since it tells the grader that you know what period the element is found in.
