# exp

## The exponential function.

**Syntax:**

exp(n);

Argument |
Description |

n |
The power of e. |

**Returns:** Real

### Description

This is the function power(e,n), where e is approximately
2.718281828 (also known as *Euler's Number*), and n is the
number of times it should be multiplied by itself. This basically
says "how much growth do I get after n units of time (and 100%
continuous growth)?". So `exp(3)` would return 20.08, which
means that after 3 time units we have 20.08 times the amount we
started with.

**Example:**

val = exp(2);

This will set val to e^2, around 7.4.
