# @Power (Formula Language)

Raises a number to the power of an exponent.

## Syntax

**@Power(** * base* ** ;** * exponent * **)**

## Parameters

*base*

Number
or number list. The value that you want raised to *exponent. *May
be positive or negative.

*exponent*

Number or number list. The power.

## Return value

*result*

Number or number list. The
value of *base* raised to the power of *exponent*.

## Usage

If either parameter is a list, the function operates pair-wise on each element of the list, and the return value is a list with the number of elements in the larger list.

## Examples

- This example returns 8 (2 raised to the power of 3, or 2
^{3}).`@Power(2;3)`

- This example returns -8 (-2 raised to the power of 3, or -2
^{3}).`@Power(-2;3)`

- This example returns 0.125 (2 raised to the power of -3, or 2
^{-3}).`@Power(2;-3)`

- This example returns 8 and -8 in a list.
`@Power(2 : -2; 3)`
