Purpose |
Return a base number raised to a power. The base is e for EXP, 2 for EXP2, and 10 for EXP10. |
Syntax |
y = EXP(n) y = EXP2(n) y = EXP10(n) |
Remarks |
EXP returns e to the nth power, where n is a numeric variable or expression and e is the base for natural logarithms, approximately 2.718282. Among other uses, this provides a simple way to obtain the value of e itself: e = EXP(1) EXP2(n) returns 2 to the nth power, where n is a numeric variable or expression. EXP10(n) returns 10 to the nth power, where n is a numeric variable or expression. The EXP functions provide a convenient alternative to the ^ operator, which works with any base. The EXP functions return results in Extended-precision. |
