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

The number to raise to the exponent power.

exponent
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

Dim base As BigInteger = 3040506
For ctr As Integer = 0 To 10
   Console.WriteLine(BigInteger.Pow(base, ctr))

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.
