** Apply exponential calculation to a range of cells with Power function**

**Hint**

In Excel, the **Power** function returns the result of a number raised to a given power.

The syntax for the Power function is: ** Power (number, power)**,

**number**is a base number,

**power**is the exponent used to raise the base number to.

*For example, Power (10, 2), the number 10 is the base and the number 2 is the exponent. The calculating result is 100.*

Now, I have a range numbers (A1:A15), and I want to get these numbers of 3 power.

You can use this function with the following steps:

**1**. In adjacent blank cell C1, enter this formula: **=Power (A1, 3)**, see screenshot:

**2**. Then tap **Enter** key, and select cell C1, then drag the fill handle over to C10. You will get the following results:

**3**. As they are formulas, when you need copy them to other cells, please paste as values.

** Apply exponential calculation to a range of cells with the symbol ^**

As we can find the relevant +, -, *, / symbol on the keyboard, also we can use the symbol ^ to apply the exponential calculations. Such as *10^2*, it stands for 10 to the power of 2. And the calculating result is 100. So we can use this way as follows:

**1**. In adjacent blank cell C1, enter this formula: **= A1^3**, see screenshot:

**2**. Then tap **Enter** key, and select cell C1, then drag the fill handle over to C10. You will get the following results:

**3**. As they are formulas, when you need copy them to other cells, please paste as values.
