# How to use the Math.pow() method in Java

The Math.pow() is an built-in method in Java Math class and is used to calculate the power of a given number.

The power of a number refers to how many times to multiply the number with itself.

## Method signature

The signature of the pow() method is as follows:

• The method takes the base and exponent parameters of type double.
• The method calculates multiplication of the base with itself exponent times and returns the result of type double.

See the following code snippet for example:

double pow(double base, double exponent)

### Example

The pow() method is a part of java.lang.Math class, you need to import this class in your code to use the function.

Using the pow() method let’s calculate the following:

• $5^4$
• $1.5^3$
• $50^5$
import java.lang.Math;

class CalculatePower {
public static void main( String args[] ) {
//Calculating 5^4 and casting the returned double result to int
int ans1 = (int) Math.pow(5,4);
System.out.println("5^4 is "+ans1);
//Calculating 1.5^3 and storing the returned double result to ans2
double ans2 = Math.pow(1.5,3);
System.out.println("1.5^3 is "+ans2);
//Calculating 100^5 and casting the returned double result to int
double ans3 = Math.pow(50,5);
System.out.println("50^5 is "+ans3);
}
}
