Calculating smallest and largest an in Julia – nextpow() and prevpow() Methods

• Last Updated : 01 Apr, 2020

The nextpow() is an inbuilt function in julia which is used to return the smallest not less than x, where n is a non-negative integer, a must be greater than 1, and x must be greater than 0.

Syntax: nextpow(a, x)

Parameters:

• a: Specified number greater than 1.
• x: Specified number greater than 0.

Returns: It returns the smallest .

Example:

 # Julia program to illustrate # the use of nextpow() method   # Getting the smallest a ^ nprintln(nextpow(2, 8))println(nextpow(2, 10))println(nextpow(3, 8))println(nextpow(5, 15))

Output:

8
16
9
25

prevpow()

The prevpow() is an inbuilt function in julia which is used to return the largest not greater than x, where n is a non-negative integer, a must be greater than 1, and x must not be less than 1.

Syntax: prevpow(a, x)

Parameters:

• a: Specified number greater than 1.
• x: Specified number must not be less than 1.

Returns: It returns the largest .

Example:

 # Julia program to illustrate # the use of prevpow() method   # Getting the largest a ^ nprintln(prevpow(2, 8))println(prevpow(2, 6))println(prevpow(3, 8))println(prevpow(5, 15))

Output:

8
4
3
5
