# Function Exp() Foundation

Calculates the value of e to the power of x

`Exp( <nExponent> ) --> nAntilogarithm`

Exp() raises the numeric value e (base for natural logarithms, 2.71828...) to the power specified by the exponent <nExponent>.

The mathematical function Exp() calculates the antilogarithm of <nExponent>. The number y, whose natural logarithm is x, is designated as the antilogarithm of x. It is calculated by the following exponential equation:

y = e**x

The number e is the base of the natural logarithm (2.71828...) and x is <nExponent>. The value for <nExponent> may not exceed 46, or a numeric overflow is generated.

When the result is displayed, the number of decimal places is only dependent on SET DECIMALS and not on the current SET FIXED setting.
