Name

pow()

Examples
a = pow( 1, 3)# Sets 'a' to 1*1*1 = 1
b = pow( 3, 5)# Sets 'b' to 3*3*3*3*3 = 243
c = pow( 3,-5)# Sets 'c' to 1 / 3*3*3*3*3 = 1 / 243 = .0041
d = pow(-3, 5)# Sets 'd' to -3*-3*-3*-3*-3 = -243
Description Facilitates exponential expressions. The pow() function is an efficient way of multiplying numbers by themselves (or their reciprocals) in large quantities. For example, pow(3, 5) is equivalent to the expression 3*3*3*3*3 and pow(3, -5) is equivalent to 1 / 3*3*3*3*3.
Syntax
pow(n, e)
Parameters
nfloat: base of the exponential expression
efloat: power by which to raise the base
Related sqrt()
