In this article, we will learn to get exponents in Excel.
In simple words, the exponent of a number is, the number of times the number gets multiplied.
= 23 (In Mathematics) = 8
= 2 ^ 3 (In Excel) = 8
There are 2 ways to multiply numbers in Excel.
Let's learn about them one by one:
Caret ( ^ ) sign is used to indicate the exponent of a number. To use this method first start with equals ( = ) sign and then use the caret ( ^ ) sign between the numbers and exponent (power).
As shown in the above snapshot, the 2 Power of 5 comes out to be 25, which is 5 x 5.
The second method is using the Excel mathematical formula, The POWER function.
The POWER function calculates the power of a number.
As you can see from the above snapshot that POWER function returns the same result as the excel exponent character ( ^ ) does.
