# Integer.pow java

## What is Integer.pow in Java?

Integer.pow is a built-in method in Java that calculates the power of an integer. It takes two arguments, the base, and the exponent, and returns the result of raising the base to the exponent.

### Syntax:

```
int result = Integer.pow(base, exponent);
```

The `base`

argument represents the base number, and the `exponent`

argument represents the exponent of the power.

### Example:

Let's say we want to calculate 2 raised to the power of 3:

```
int result = Integer.pow(2, 3);
System.out.println(result); // Output: 8
```

The output will be 8, which is the result of 2 raised to the power of 3.

### Alternative way:

Another way to calculate the power of an integer is by using the Math.pow() method. This method can be used to calculate the power of any number, not just integers.

#### Syntax:

```
double result = Math.pow(base, exponent);
```

Here, the `base`

and `exponent`

arguments are both of type double.

#### Example:

Let's say we want to calculate 2 raised to the power of 3:

```
double result = Math.pow(2.0, 3.0);
System.out.println(result); // Output: 8.0
```

The output will be 8.0, which is the result of 2 raised to the power of 3.

It's important to note that the Math.pow() method returns a double value, while the Integer.pow() method returns an integer value.
