I am confused about the Math.Pow() variable. I know it’s supposed to raise a number to the power of another number. But like, concretely I don’t get what that means or how it really works.

Hello! When you use `Math.Pow()`

, you pass in two `double`

s. The first one(`x`

) is the base, or the number you want to be raised. The second one(`y`

) is the power. It returns the first number raised to the second number (`x**y`

):

```
//I want to raise 4 to the 3rd power, and save it:
double someVar = Math.Pow(4, 3);
//someVar now stores the value 64, or 4**3 or 4^3
```

I hope this helps!

Thank you! That really helped!
