"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would just create a routine to do it.
You can do it any way you want, with recursion or what not.

// this is UNTESTED code. May have errors
public int power(int base, int power)
if(power == 1)
return base;

return base * power(base, power-1);
using System.Math;


int x = 4
int y = pow (x, 3);    // returns x raised to the 3rd power
