Exponentiation

Summary: Two ways to raise numbers to powers inside Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheets.

There are two ways to perform exponentiation (raising a number to a power) in a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet.

A: Use the ^ operator

B: Use the =POWER function

Syntax:

=power(NUMBER,POWER)

NUMBER is the number to be raised

POWER is the power to that NUMBER will be raised.

The following two cells will return the exact same value, 32:

A1: =2^5
A2: =POWER(2,5)
