#### Program to find power of a number

```
/**
* C program to find power of any number
*/

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h> // Used for pow() function

int main()
{
double base, expo, power;

/* Input two numbers from user */
printf("Enter base: ");
scanf("%lf", &base);
printf("Enter exponent: ");
scanf("%lf", &expo);

/* Calculates base^expo */
power = pow(base, expo);

printf("%.2lf ^ %.2lf = %.2lf", base, expo, power);

return 0;
}
```

%.2lf is used to print fractional value up to 2 decimal places.

Also check other approaches to find power of a number.

##### Output:
```
Enter base: 5
Enter exponent: 3
5 ^ 3 = 125
```
```
