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 
n  float: base of the exponential expression 
e  float: power by which to raise the base
