Hackerrank - Power - Mod Power Solution
So far, we have only heard of Python's powers. Now, we will witness them!
Powers or exponents in Python can be calculated using the built-in power function. Call the power function as shown below:
It's also possible to calculate .
This is very helpful in computations where you have to print the resultant % mod.
Note: Here, and can be floats or negatives, but, if a third argument is present, cannot be negative.
Note: Python has a math module that has its own pow(). It takes two arguments and returns a float. Frankly speaking, we will never use math.pow().
You are given three integers: , , and , respectively. Print two lines.
The first line should print the result of pow(a,b). The second line should print the result of pow(a,b,m).
The first line contains , the second line contains , and the third line contains .

Solution in Python
a,b,c = (int(input()) for i in range(3)) print(pow(a,b), pow(a,b,c), sep="\n")
