Exponentiation Besides addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, Python also supports exponentiation, which is the raising of one number to the power of another. This operation is performed using two asterisks. >>> 2**5 32 >>> 9 ** (1/2) 3.0 PLEASE ALSO READ COMMENTS SECTION OF THIS PAGE(link is given below), THAT WILL HELP TO UNDERSTAND. https://www.sololearn.com/learn/Python/2273/

Hey there ūüėÉ When we say exponential, we are saying that we multiply a number multiple times. 2**2 is saying multiply 2 twice. 3**2 is saying multiply 3 twice. 2**12 is saying multiply 2 twelve times. And so on... base ** exponent Multiply the <base> <exponent> number of times. Hope that helps you ūüėÉ

Eliakim Ramos // is the floor division symbol. 5 // 2 means how many 2's can you get in 5. There are two 2's in 5. Therefore, 5 // 2 = 2.

Simply put it means multiplying the number by itself. How many times you do that depends on the exponent.
