How can I know the power of a number without using the operator **

```
import math
math.pow(x, y)
```

Returns the value of `x`

to the power of `y`

(For Python)

Adding on to above, you can use

`Math.pow(x, y)`

for JavaScript/TypeScript. It’s a built in static method (for both vanilla js and node), so no need to import anything.

I think `pow`

and `powf`

would be for C.

Or if you love inefficiency, just keep multiplying:

```
let acc = 1;
let pow = 10;
let base = 2;
for (let i = 0; i < pow; i++) acc *= base;
// acc is 1024
```

(this is javascript but it’s basically the same in almost every other language)

Wouldn’t that also work if you want to work with two floats, but don’t want to link your program with `-lm`

? (C)
