In c language we include <math.h> library to perform exponent operation by using pow() function


#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>

void main()
    float a = pow(2, 3);//power function always return floating value.
    printf("%f\n", a);

but in python we can use ** (double asetrick)operator to perform exponential operation as shown below example

float a=2**3


out put: 8

Operand in an exponential function is not one. There are two operands namely

1. The one whose power we are calculating

2.The raise to term

eg. 3^4

Here operator is '^' and operands are 3 and 4

Hope it helps..

What language are you after?

In Python you can use the double asterisk to express an exponent, like this

eight = 2 ** 3

Other languages have mathematics libraries with typically a pow() or power() function.

In C, you'd write

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>

int main()
    float eight = pow(2, 3);
    printf("%f\n", eight);
    return 0;

Answer is:     **
