C# Question

Is there an exponent operator in C#?

For example, does an operator exist to handle this?

float Result, Number1, Number2;

Number1 = 2;
Number2 = 2;

Result = Number1 (operator) Number2;


In the past the
^
operator has served as an exponential operator in other languages, but in C# it is a bit-wise operator.

Do I have to write a loop or include another namespace to handle exponential operations? If so, how do I handle exponential operations using non-integers?

Answer

The C# language doesn't have a power operator. However, the .NET Framework offers the Math.Pow method:

Returns a specified number raised to the specified power.

So your example would look like this:

float Result, Number1, Number2;

Number1 = 2;
Number2 = 2;

Result = Math.Pow(Number1, Number2);
