The `power`

function can be used in custom filters and table calculations to raise a number to the power of a given exponent.

# Syntax

`power(base, exponent)`

The `power`

function evaluates a `base`

by raising it to the power of a given `exponent`

.

# Examples

The `power`

function can be used to raise a number to the power of another number. For example, 2^{3} would be written as:

```
power(2, 3)
```

Typically, the `power`

function is used with a field reference or an expression.
For example:

```
power(${order_item.standard_deviation_profit}, 2)
```

# Things to know

The `power`

function can also be used to take the nth root of a number by using 1/n as the `exponent`

. For example, the cube root (the 3rd root) of 7 would be:

```
power(7, 1/3)
```

For a square root (the 2nd root) just use the `sqrt`

function.
