Python Question

What's the difference between "2*2" and "2**2" in Python?

What is the difference between the following codes?

code1

var=2**2*3


code2

var2=2*2*3


I see no difference.
This raises the following question.

Why is the code1 used if we can use code2?

Answer

try:

2**3*2

and

2*3*2

To see the difference.

**

Is the operator for "power of"

In your particular operation 2 power of 2 yields the same as 2 times 2.
