#### The function POWER takes two Numbers, b and n, and returns *b*^{n}.

^{n}

This function takes two Numbers as input: *b* and* n*. It returns another Number: the numerical estimation of *b* taken to the power of *n*.

### Declaration

POWER(b, n) -> number

### Parameters

**b**(required, type:*Number*)- Any Number; this is the base number that will be taken to the power of
**n**.

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

### Return Values

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

### Examples

The following example calculates *2 ^{3}*:

POWER(2, 3) -> 8

Neither **b** nor **n** need to be whole numbers. The following example calculates* 0.25 ^{0.5}*:

POWER(0.25, 0.5) -> 0.5
