Can anyone explain Exponentiation?
If this concept has not come up yet in your school studies then we are at a bit of a disadvantage since we cannot be sure how much you understand already, and what it is you do not understand. Can you expand upon your question, please? Thanks.
Include a link to the lesson, as well as what code you have attempted thus far.
Are you getting error messages? Please include them, as well. Thanks.
Briefly, to start us off…
2 * 2 == 4
* is the multiplication operator in most programming languages, including Python. What we have above is a number times itself, a math concept known as squaring. The following expression gives the same outcome…
2 ** 2
It reads as,
two squared, or
two to the power of two. When we raise a value to some power, that power value is the exponent and the process of performing this computation is called exponentiation.
One more example,
3 ** 3 == 27
The equivalent expanded expression to this is,
3 * 3 * 3 3 * 3 == 9 9 * 3 == 27
Oh Got it… Thank u very much… it’s quite interesting to learn.
