Given an integer x and a positive number y, write a function that computes xy under following conditions.
a) Time complexity of the function should be O(Log y)
b) Extra Space is O(1)
Input: x = 3, y = 5 Output: 243 Input: x = 2, y = 5 Output: 32
We strongly recommend that you click here and practice it, before moving on to the solution.
We have discussed recursive O(Log y) solution for power. The recursive solutions are generally not preferred as they require space on call stack and they involve function call overhead.
Following is implementation to compute xy.
Power is 243
