Raise a number to a power.

`POWER(number, power)`

- Number - the base number (required)
- Power - the exponent to which the base number is raised to (required)

`=POWER(2,3)`

This example raises 2 to the power of 3. This is equivalent to multiplying 2 by itself 3 times. So the result of this example is 2 x 2 x 2 = 8.

`=POWER(2,8)`

This example raises 2 to the power of 8. This is equivalent to multiplying 2 by itself 8 times. So the result of this example is 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 = 256.

`POWER(A1,3)`

This example raises the value in the cell A1 to the power of 3. This is equivalent to multiplying the value in cell A1 by itself 3 times. So if A1 contains the value 5, the result of this example is 5 x 5 x 5 = 125.

`=POWER(27,1/3)`

This example raises the number 27 to the power of 1/3. This is equivalent to finding the cube root of 27. So the result of this example is 3.

`=POWER(81,1/4)`

This example raises the number 81 to the power of 1/4. This is equivalent to finding the fourth root of 81. So the result of this example is 3.

`=POWER(256,1/8)`

This example raises 256 to the power of 1/8, which is the same as computing the eighth root of 256.

The POWER function is used to multiply a number by a power. It requires two arguments, the base number and the power, and the base number can be any real number.

- The POWER function is an alternative to the exponent operator (^) for equations.
- The arguments for the POWER function are number and power. Both arguments are required.
- The power argument is the power to raise a number to.

The POWER function is a mathematical expression that takes a number and a power as arguments and raises the number to the power indicated.

POWER requires two arguments: a number and a power. The number argument is the base number, and the power argument is the exponent to raise the base number to.

The POWER function and the ^ operator both raise the base number to a certain power, however the POWER function is useful when a more descriptive statement is desired.

Yes, the POWER function can be used in place of the ^ operator when you want to indicate to what power the base number should be raised.
