exp()

The exp() function returns the base-e exponential value of the argument (i.e., e raised to the power of the argument). This is the inverse of the log() function.

Syntax

exp(x)

The x parameter is a double value that can be positive, negative, or zero.

Example

The following example uses the exp() function to find the value of e3:

#include <iostream>
#include <cmath>
int main() {
double x = 3;
double result;
result = exp(x);
std::cout << "The exp of " << x << " is " << result << "\n";
}

This produces the following output:

The exp of 3 is 20.0855

Codebyte Example

The following example is runnable and returns the value of e1:
