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
