What does the ^ symbol mean?


bostjan64Raise to a power. It means the number is multiplied by itself the number of times indicated by the power. A ^ 3, for example, is A x A x A. B ^ 5 would be B x B x B x B x B. So 3 ^ 3 = 3 x 3 x 3 = 9. But 3 ^ 9 is not the same as 9 ^ 3, and there is no defined rule for whether you work left to right or right to left in this instance.
