Description:

The method returns the value of the first argument raised to the power of the second argument.

Syntax:

double pow(double base, double exponent)

Parameters:

Here is the detail of parameters:

  • base -- A primitive data type

  • exponenet -- A primitive data type

Return Value:

  • This method Returns the value of the first argument raised to the power of the second argument.

Example:

public class Test{ 

   public static void main(String args[]){
      double x = 11.635;
      double y = 2.76;

      System.out.printf("The value of e is %.4f%n", Math.E);
      System.out.printf("pow(%.3f, %.3f) is %.3f%n",
                                         x, y, Math.pow(x, y));
