Huh? You mean calculate the exponent?
There are functions like 'exp' and 'pow' for that.

yep, exp is the function you want.

#include <cmath>
using namespace std;

cout << exp(log(1.3)) << endl;

prints 1.3 (as you would hope).

Yep, exp is the inverse logarithm or antilogarithm.

You don't have to include cmath, or to use namespace. It is enough to

#include <math.h>

and then either cout or printf whatever you like.

#include <math.h>

includes the standard C math header

#include <cmath>

includes the standard C++ header (wraps the C standard file functionality (the c at the front of the file name) in the C++ std namespace).

So, actually, either works.

Excuse me, but why "C"? What was wrong or unsatisfactory with my answer?
