Tool to compute power of a number. Exponentiation (or power) of a number 'a^b' is the result of the 'b'-times repeated multiplication of the number 'a' by itself.

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

$$ a^n = \underbrace{a \times \cdots \times a}_{b\ times} $$

Example: $$ 2^5 = 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 \times 2 = 32 $$

In a power calculation $ a^b = c $, the part $ a $ is called the *base* and the part $ b $ is called the *exponent*, $ c $ is normally called *power* but in everyday language *power* and *exponentiation* are often exchanged.

Like the multiplication tables, there is a, exponentiation table, or table of powers but this one is not symmetrical (a^b is not always equal to b^a). Here is the table reading row^column:

\ | 0 | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 |
---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|---|

0 | 1 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 | 0 |

1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 | 1 |

2 | 1 | 2 | 4 | 8 | 16 | 32 | 64 | 128 | 256 | 512 | 1024 |

In mathematics, a power is written $ a $ exponent $ b $ as $ a^b $.

In computing, the exponentiation calculation is often indicated by a circumflex ^ : a^b for a power b. In some programming languages, the notation a**b (the multiplication sign twice) is used.

A negative power is the inverse of a positive power.

$$ a^{-n} = \frac{1}{a^n} $$

Example: $ 2^{-3} = \frac{1}{2^3} $

The power $ -1 $ in maths is equivalent to a mathematical inverse.

$$ n^{-1} = \frac{1}{n^1} = \frac{1}{n} $$

Example: $ 2^{-1} = \frac{1}{2} $

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. Use the formal calculator on dCode.

The exponentiation operator has 3 main mathematical identities:

$$ a^{b + c} = a^b \cdot a^c \\ (a^b)^n = a^{b \cdot n} \\ (a \cdot b)^n = a^n \cdot b^n $$
