# Java program to calculate the power of a number

Java Programming Java8Object Oriented Programming

Read the base and exponent values from the user. Multiply the base number by itself and multiply the resultant with base (again) repeat this n times where n is the exponent value.

2 ^ 5 = 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 X 2 (5 times)

## Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class PowerOfNumber {
public static void main(String args[]){
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.println("Enter the base number ::");
int base = sc.nextInt();
int temp = base;
System.out.println("Enter the exponent number ::");
int exp = sc.nextInt();

for (int i=1; i<exp; i++){
temp = temp*temp;
}
System.out.println("Result of "+base+" power "+exp+" is "+temp);
}
}

## Output

Enter the base number ::
12
Enter the exponent number ::
2
Result of 12 power 2 is 144
