# JavaScript - Math.pow() Method

The JavaScript Math.pow() method returns the base raise to the power of exponent.

### Syntax

```Math.pow(base, exponent)
```

### Parameters

 `base` Specify the base. `exponent` Specify the exponent.

### Return Value

Returns the base raise to the power of exponent.
If the base is negative and the exponent is not an integer, the result is NaN.

### Example:

In the example below, Math.pow() method is used to calculate the base raised to the power of exponent.

```var txt;

txt = "Math.pow(5, 2) = " + Math.pow(5, 2) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.pow(5, 2.5) = " + Math.pow(5, 2.5) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.pow(5.5, 2.5) = " + Math.pow(5.5, 2.5) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.pow(-5, 2) = " + Math.pow(-5, 2.) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.pow(-5, 2.5) = " + Math.pow(-5, 2.5) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.pow(-5.5, 2.5) = " + Math.pow(-5.5, 2.5) + "<br>";
```

The output (value of txt) after running above script will be:

```Math.pow(5, 2) = 25
Math.pow(5, 2.5) = 55.90169943749474
Math.pow(5.5, 2.5) = 70.94253836732938
Math.pow(-5, 2) = 25
Math.pow(-5, 2.5) = NaN
Math.pow(-5.5, 2.5) = NaN
```
