The function EXP take some number n and returns en.
EXP(n) -> number
- n (required, type: Number)
- Any Number; this is what e will be taken to the power of.
- number (type: Number)
- The numerical estimation of e raised to the nth power, or en.
The following example calculates a numerical estimation of e1, 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 e0.5 (otherwise known as the square root of e):
EXP(0.5) -> 1.6487212707001282
The function EXP only takes the constant e to a given power. To calculate any number to a given power, use the POWER function.
