# BigInteger.Pow(BigInteger, Int32)BigInteger.Pow(BigInteger, Int32)BigInteger.Pow(BigInteger, Int32)BigInteger.Pow(BigInteger, Int32) Method

## Definition

Raises a BigInteger value to the power of a specified value.

``````public:
static System::Numerics::BigInteger Pow(System::Numerics::BigInteger value, int exponent);``````
``public static System.Numerics.BigInteger Pow (System.Numerics.BigInteger value, int exponent);``
``static member Pow : System.Numerics.BigInteger * int -> System.Numerics.BigInteger``
``Public Shared Function Pow (value As BigInteger, exponent As Integer) As BigInteger``

#### Parameters

value
BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger BigInteger

The number to raise to the `exponent` power.

exponent
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

The exponent to raise `value` by.

#### Returns

The result of raising `value` to the `exponent` power.

#### Exceptions

`exponent` is negative.

## Examples

The following example illustrates exponentiation using a BigInteger value and an exponent whose value ranges from 0 to 10.

``````BigInteger numericBase = 3040506;
for (int ctr = 0; ctr <= 10; ctr++)
{
Console.WriteLine(BigInteger.Pow(numericBase, ctr));
}
//
// The example produces the following output to the console:
//
// 1
// 3040506
// 9244676736036
// 28108495083977874216

## Remarks

The Pow method returns 1 if the value of the exponent parameter is 0, or if the values of both the `value` and `exponent` parameters are 0. If `exponent` is 1, the Pow method returns `value`. If `value` is negative, the method returns a negative result.

This method corresponds to the Math.Pow method for primitive numeric types.
