Exponents

Question:
How do I go about using exponents in Java? For example, how would I do 6 to the power of 3?

Answer:
You want to look at the documentation for the java.lang.Math class, which contains many commonly used math functions. To raise a number to a given power, you would use Math.pow(double, double). Specifically, to raise 6 to the power of 3, you might write:

double result = Math.pow(6.0,3.0)
