Answers to Questions

How to calculate a raised to power b?

Calculating \( a \) power \( b \) (also called \( a \) exponent \( b \)) corresponds to multiply \( a \) by itself \( b \) times.

Inmathematics, you can write \( a \) exponent \( b \) as \( a^b \).

In computing, the exponentiation calculation is often indicated by a circumflex ^.

a^b for a power b (a is called the base and b the exponent).

In some programming languages there is also a**b (the multiplication sign twice)

Why exponent has to be an integer and not rational?

Exponent corresponds to the number of times the multiplication has to be done. If the exponent is not an integer, it becomes a root calculus and is not managed by this function.
