# CoffeeScript Math - pow()

## Description

The pow() method accepts two numbers, a base and an exponent and this method returns the base to the exponent power, that is, baseexponent.

## Syntax

Given below is the syntax of pow() method of JavaScript. We can use the same method in the CoffeeScript code.

```Math.pow ( x )
```

## Example

The following example demonstrates the usage of the pow() method in CoffeeScript. Save this code in a file with name math_pow.coffee.

```value = Math.pow 7, 2
console.log "The value of pow(7,2) is : " + value

value = Math.pow 3,9
console.log "The value of pow(3,9) is : " + value

value = Math.pow 12,8
console.log "The value of pow(12,8) is : " + value

value = Math.pow 125,0
console.log "The value of pow(125,0) is : " + value
```

Open the command prompt and compile the .coffee file as shown below.

```c:\> coffee -c math_pow.coffee
```

On compiling, it gives you the following JavaScript.

```// Generated by CoffeeScript 1.10.0
(function() {
var value;

value = Math.pow(7, 2);

console.log("The value of pow(7,2) is : " + value);

value = Math.pow(3, 9);

console.log("The value of pow(3,9) is : " + value);

value = Math.pow(12, 8);

console.log("The value of pow(12,8) is : " + value);

value = Math.pow(125, 0);

console.log("The value of pow(125,0) is : " + value);

}).call(this);
```

Now, open the command prompt again, and run the CoffeeScript file as shown below.

```c:\> coffee math_pow.coffee
```

On executing, the CoffeeScript file produces the following output.

```The value of pow(7,2) is : 49
The value of pow(3,9) is : 19683
The value of pow(12,8) is : 429981696
The value of pow(125,0) is : 1
