# Ruby | Math ldexp() function

The ldexp() function in Ruby returns the value of fraction * (2^exponent) when fraction and exponent are given as parameters. The fraction is a float value and the exponent is an integer.

Syntax: Math.ldexp(fraction, exponent)

Parameter: The function takes two mandatory parameter fraction and exponent which specifies the fraction and exponent whose result is returned.

Return Value: The function returns the value of fraction and exponent.

Example 1:

 `# Ruby program for ldexp() function  ` ` `  `# Assigning values ` `fraction1, exponent1 = Math.``frexp``(189)  ` ` `  `fraction2, exponent2 = Math.``frexp``(19)  ` ` `  `fraction3, exponent3 = Math.``frexp``(18)  ` ` `  `fraction4, exponent4 = Math.``frexp``(123)  ` ` `  `# Prints the value returned by ldexp()  ` `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction1, exponent1) ` ` `  `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction2, exponent2) ` ` `  `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction3, exponent3) ` ` `  `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction4, exponent4) `

Output:

```189.0
19.0
18.0
123.0```

Example 2:

 `# Ruby program for ldexp() function  ` ` `  `# Assigning values ` `fraction1, exponent1 = Math.``frexp``(23)  ` ` `  `fraction2, exponent2 = Math.``frexp``(27)  ` ` `  `fraction3, exponent3 = Math.``frexp``(1092)  ` ` `  `fraction4, exponent4 = Math.``frexp``(1087)  ` ` `  `# Prints the value returned by ldexp()  ` `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction1, exponent1) ` ` `  `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction2, exponent2) ` ` `  `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction3, exponent3) ` ` `  `puts` `Math.``ldexp``(fraction4, exponent4) `

Output:

```23.0
27.0
1092.0
1087.0
```
