Write a C program to input any two numbers x and y and find their power using inbuilt pow() function. How to find power of two numbers in C programming. How to use pow() function in C programming. C program to compute power of two numbers using predefined library function.

**Example**

**Input**

Enter base: 5 Enter exponent: 2

**Output**

x ^ y = 25

## Required knowledge

Fundamentals of C, Data types, Talking user input in C

## Program to find power of a number

/** * C program to find power of any number */ #include <stdio.h> #include <math.h> //Used for pow() function int main() { double x, y, power; // Reads two numbers from user to calculate power printf("Enter base: "); scanf("%lf", &x); printf("Enter exponent: "); scanf("%lf", &y); // Calculates x^y power = pow(x, y); printf("x ^ y = %.2lf", power); return 0; }

Before you move on to next program or exercise learn how to find power using other programming methods -

Enter base: 5 Enter exponent: 3 x ^ y = 125

**Note:** %.2lf is used to print fractional value upto 2 decimal places.

Happy coding ;)
