    math.h - pow(), sqrt() and other great math functions in there.
    If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to see it, do the other trees make fun of it?

    In algebra it does. In C++, I'm sure you know how to use pow().

    4^2 is 16
    4^4 is 256

    lol

    i have always thought exponents are just a shortcut. and we all know where shortcuts get u lol.

    just like in coding, you need to understand what is happening in the problem to be able to solve it.

    so from now on, instead of 4^15'th power, make it 4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4*4, and check yourself to make sure ur correct.

    lol if u follow my advice, you will go crazy in a matter of minutes!
