# Golang : Math pow(the power of x^y) example

No programming language will be complete without `the power of`

math function. This tutorial is a simple example on how to use `math.Pow()`

function.

In Math

2^5 = 2x2x2x2x2 =32In Golang

Math.pow(2, 5)

In code :

```
package main
import (
"fmt"
"math"
)
func main() {
result := math.Pow(2, 5)
fmt.Println(" 2 power of 5 is : ", result)
x := 10.5
y := 5
floatResult := math.Pow(x, float64(y)) //type cast int to float64
fmt.Printf(" %.02f power of %d is : %.02f \n", x, y, floatResult)
}
```

2 power of 5 is : 32

10.50 power of 5 is : 127628.16
