# Exponentiation

Feeling Geeky

This program is something of a follow-on from the one that can multiply large numbers together. Here, you can calculate one integer (whole number) to the power of a number. By this, I mean you can multiply one number by itself, another number of times.

For example, 6 to the power of 5, which is written as 65, is 6 * 6 * 6 * 6 * 6, which happens to be 7,776.

Enter the base into the first box, and the power into the other box.

Select the symbol for the thousand-separator (none, space, comma, decimal point or apostrophe) then click on the button, and the result, i.e. the first number to the power of the second number, will appear in the box, with the selected thousand-separators. Once the product appears in the box below, you can right click it, select the number, and then copy it to other places, like in a word processor document for example.

WARNING: This script uses Javascript, which is client-side scripting. This means that your computer does the calculating and displays it in the box below. The larger the number inputted, the longer it will take to process the output. If you have an older (and less powerful) computer, it is recommended that you avoid inputting larger numbers (say, trying to get the power of more than 2000), otherwise you run the risk of the computer freezing up. I take no responsibility for computer crashes (including consequent loss of unsaved data) as a result of inputting extremely large numbers where your computer is perhaps not up to the task.
