How to Compute the Power of a Number in Python

In this tutorial, we will program 'How to Compute the Power of a Number in Python'. We will learn how to determine the answer for getting the power of a number. The main goal here is to create a program that can accurately calculate the power of a number. I will provide a sample program to demonstrate the actual coding of this tutorial.

This topic is very easy to understand; just follow the instructions I provide, and you can also do it yourself with ease. The program I will show you covers the basics of programming for calculating the power of a number. I will do my best to provide you with the easiest method for calculation. So, let's start with the coding.

Getting Started:

First you will have to download & install the Python IDLE's, here's the link for the Integrated Development And Learning Environment for Python

Creating Main Function

This is the main function of the application. The following code will display a simple GUI in terminal console that will display program. To do this, simply copy and paste these blocks of code into the IDLE text editor.
  1. ret = False
  4. while True:
  5. print("\n================== Get the number of weeks in a month ==================\n\n")
  7. base = int(input("Enter the base number: "))
  8. print("\n")
  9. exponent = int(input("Enter the exponent number: "))
  11. result = 1
  13. while exponent != 0:
  14. result *= base
  15. exponent-=1
  17. print("\n")
  18. print("The answer is: " + str(result))
  20. opt = input("Do you want to try again?(yes/no): ")
  22. if opt.lower() == 'yes':
  23. ret=False
  24. elif opt.lower() == 'no':
  25. ret=True
  26. print("Exiting program....")
  28. else:
  29. print("Please enter yes/no:")
  30. break
  32. if ret == False:
  33. continue

This Python script calculates the result of raising a base number to an exponent. It prompts the user to enter the base number and the exponent number, then calculates the result by iteratively multiplying the base number by itself for the specified number of times. After displaying the result, it prompts the user if they want to try again or exit the program.
