C# Math.Pow() – Examples

In this tutorial, we will learn about the C# Math.Pow() method, and learn how to use this method to find the result of a number raised to a specified power, with the help of examples.

Pow(Double, Double)

Math.Pow(x, y) returns the value of specified number x raised to the specified power y.

Syntax

The syntax of Pow() method is

Math.Pow(Double x, Double y)

where

ParameterDescription
xA double-precision floating-point number to be raised to a power.
yA double-precision floating-point number that specifies a power.

Return Value

The method returns Double value.

Example 1 – Pow(x, y)

In this example, we will take different values for x and y, and compute the value of x raised to the power y using Math.Pow() method.

C# Program

using System;
 
class Example {
    static void Main(string[] args) {
        Double x, y, result;

        x = 2;
        y = 3;
        result = Math.Pow(x, y);
        Console.WriteLine($"Pow({x},{y}) = {result}");

        x = -1;
        y = 3;
        result = Math.Pow(x, y);
        Console.WriteLine($"Pow({x},{y}) = {result}");

        x = 4;
        y = 2;
        result = Math.Pow(x, y);
        Console.WriteLine($"Pow({x},{y}) = {result}");

        x = 9;
        y = 0.5;
        result = Math.Pow(x, y);
        Console.WriteLine($"Pow({x},{y}) = {result}");

        x = 1;
        y = 0;
        result = Math.Pow(x, y);
        Console.WriteLine($"Pow({x},{y}) = {result}");
    }
}

Output

Pow(2,3) = 8
Pow(-1,3) = -1
Pow(4,2) = 16
Pow(9,0.5) = 3
Pow(1,0) = 1

Conclusion

In this C# Tutorial, we have learnt the syntax of C# Math.Pow() method, and also learnt how to use this method with the help of C# example programs.
