Hi guys: Can any one please tell me how to raise the power of any number for eg. 2 raise to power 3 = 8

Thanks.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
      int number = 0;
        int power1 = 0;
        cout << "Enter Number to raise==>";
        cin >> number;
        cout << "Enter Power==>";
        cin >> power1;
        cout << number^power1;  // syntax error
      system("pause");
      return 0;
}

Why it gives syntax error
  result = pow(number,power1);

-----------------------
#include <iostream>
#include <math.h>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
      int number = 0;
        int power1 = 0;
        int result = 0;
        cout << "Enter Number to raise==>";
        cin >> number;
        cout << "Enter Power==>";
        cin >> power1;
        result = pow(number,power1);
        cout << result << endl;
      system("pause");
      return 0;
}

No idea about a syntax error, but check your types. It returns a float/double and the first parameter might need to be casted to a double. Try this:

result = (int)pow((double)number,power1);

It might not know which version of the function to call as your number variable is an int, which doesn't match any of the pow methods exactly. Try:

result = pow((double)number, power1);

which casts the variable number to a double before calling the function, which specifies that it should call that version of the pow function.
