# JavaScript Math pow() Method

The Math. pow() method is used to power a number i.e., the value of the number raised to some exponent. Since Math.pow() is a static method of Math and therefore it is always used as Math.pow() and not as a method of an object created in Math class.

Syntax:

`Math.pow(base, exponent)`

Parameters:

• base: It is the base number that is to be raised.
• exponent: It is the value used to raise the base.

Return Value: The Math.pow() method returns a number representing the given base raised to the power of the given exponent

Example: In this example, we will use Math.pow() method.

## javascript

 `console.log(Math.pow(3, 4));`

Output
```81

```

More codes for the above method are as follows:

Example 1: When both base and exponent are passed as positive numbers in parameters:

## javascript

 `console.log(Math.pow(9, 3));`

Output
```729

```

Example 2: When the base value is negative and the exponent is positive:

## javascript

 `console.log(Math.pow(-9, 3));`

Output
```-729

```

Example 3: When the base value is positive and the exponent is negative:

## javascript

 `console.log(Math.pow(9, -3));`

Output
```0.0013717421124828533

```

Example 4: When the base value is negative and the exponent has decimal point: It returns NaN.

## javascript

 `console.log(Math.pow(-9, 0.5));`

Output
```NaN

```
