If you require to compute exponential values like finding the square of the number etc , the Math.Pow method in c# could be handy for you to try .

The Math.Pow method is defined in the “System” namespace .

To use the method “Math.Pow” , you should first include the namespace System

using System;

The Math.Pow accepts 2 parameters

- number to be raised to a power
- number that specifies a power

Note that the parameters to the Math.Pow must be of type double .

For example , i can use the method

double value1 = Math.Pow(3, 3);

The above code is equivalent to 3 ^ 3 .

Below is a sample function that i used for my new WP7 App which uses the Math.Pow function

private decimal CalclateEMI(decimal LoanAmount,int Months,double Interest) { Interest = (Interest / 100)/12; decimal EMI = (LoanAmount * (Decimal)Interest) * (Decimal)( Math.Pow((1+ Interest), Months) / ((Math.Pow((1+ Interest ), Months)) - 1)); return EMI; }

Math.Pow is one of the useful method that provides a clear way to calculate exponential values ;
