Python math library | exp() method

Python has math library and has many functions regarding it. One such function is exp(). This method is used to calculate the power of e i.e. e^y or we can say exponential of y. The value of e is approximately equal to 2.71828…..

Syntax : math.exp(y)

Parameters :
y [Required] – It is any valid python number either positive or negative.
Note that if y has value other than number then its return error.

Returns: Returns floating point number by calculating e^y.
