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));
   }
}

This will produce the following result −
