## Implementing power function

Given the base and exponent, how do we implement the pow(base,exp) function efficiently? For example pow(2.0,5) = 32 pow(0.4,2) = 0.16 pow(2.0,-2) = 0.25 For simplicity, let us assume that the base can be a decimal number and exponent can be any integer. A straight forward implementation that comes to mind is simply multiplying the…
