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 \( b \)) 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 |

3 | 1 | 3 | 9 | 27 | 81 | 243 | 729 | 2187 | 6561 | 19683 | 59049 |

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.

Example: \( a^{-2} = \frac{1}{a^2} \)

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

Example: \( n^{-1} = \frac{1}{n^1} = \frac{1}{n} \)

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:

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