The Java method that computes exponentiation is "pow(X, Y)." It returns the value of argument X (base) raised to the power of argument Y (exponent). Both arguments use the "double" data type.
To use the pow method in a Java program, import the Math class first by writing the line "import static java.lang.Math.*;" at the top of the code. Alternately, "Math.pow(X, Y)" can also be used to call the method directly from the Math class. The Math class also contains several other advanced mathematical computations, such as trigonometric functions and finding the square root and natural logarithm of a value.
