Java Guava | pow(long b, int k) of LongMath Class with Examples
  • Last Updated : 28 Jan, 2019

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

Syntax:

public static long pow(long b, int k)

Parameters: The method accepts two parameters, b and k. The parameter b is called base which is raised to the k-th power.

Return Value: This method returns the k-th power of b.

Exception: This method throws IllegalArgumentException if k is negative.

class GFG {
  
    // Driver code
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        long b1 = 4;
        int k1 = 5;
  
        long ans1 = LongMath.pow(b1, k1);
  
        System.out.println(b1 + " to the " + k1
                           + "th power is: "
                           + ans1);
  
        long b2 = 12;
        int k2 = 3;
  
        long ans2 = LongMath.pow(b2, k2);
  
        System.out.println(b2 + " to the " + k2
                           + "rd power is: "
                           + ans2);
    }
}
