You would NOT believe the amount of shit Java's math.pow does.
Math.pow delegates to StrictMath.pow.
Ctrl+F "pow" and take a look for yourself.

that function is actually covers a lot of cases that your shitty method would probably shit itself on; does yours do non positive powers or fractional powers too?

>>hurp derp why do I need to have a power function that is mathematically correct? I'm not a math nerd, lel.
fucking hypocrisy is a bitch.
I'm a different guy, but can you really not see an application for multiplying by a negative power? I mean just this week I've had to use it for my sigmoid function in a neural network. You may as well have asked about bitshifting and other bitwise operators.
Give an example when I would need to be this dense and not be trying to dodge questions
Just correcting you bro
As much as most of 4chan is upset about sjw's ranting about "privilege", OSS users have become some of the most overprivileged dicks in existence.

Seriously I just wanted to know what the fuck was up with the syntax.
