Java Guava | pow(int b, int k) method of IntMath Class

The method pow(int b, int k) of Guava’s IntMath class returns b to the kth power. Even if the result overflows, it will be equal to BigInteger.valueOf(b).pow(k).intValue(). This implementation runs in O(log k) time.

Syntax:

public static int pow(int b, int k)

Exception: The method pow(int b, int k) throws IllegalArgumentException if k < 0.

                           + "th power is: "
                           + ans);
  
        b = 12;
        k = 3;
  
        ans = findPow(b, k);
  
        System.out.println(b + " to the " + k
                           + "th power is: "
                           + ans);
    }
