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.
