#### The function EXP take some number *n* and returns *e*^{n}.

^{n}

This function takes a Number as input. It returns another Number: the numerical constant *e* taken to the power of the given number.

### Declaration

EXP(n) -> number

Parameters

**n**(required, type:*Number*)- Any Number; this is what
*e*will be taken to the power of.

### Return Values

**number**(type:*Number*)- The numerical estimation of e raised to the
**n**th power, or*e*.^{n}

### Examples

The following example calculates a numerical estimation of *e ^{1}*, or simply

*e.*Note that

*e*is an irrational number; the output of this function is an approximation of the value of

*e*rather than an infinite decimal. This should be sufficient for most practical applications, though it can be the source of small rounding errors:

EXP(1) -> 2.718281828459045

The EXP function does not require input in whole numbers. The following example calculates a numerical estimation of *e ^{0.5}* (otherwise known as the square root of

*e*):

EXP(0.5) -> 1.6487212707001282

### Discussion

The function EXP only takes the constant *e* to a given power. To calculate any number to a given power, use the POWER function.
