# C++ program to find the power of a number using loop

Finding power of a number in C++: Here, we are going to learn how to find the power of a number using loop in C++?

Here, we are going to calculate the value of Nth power of a number without using pow function.

The idea is using loop. We will be multiplying a number (initially with value 1) by the number input by user (of which we have to find the value of Nth power) for N times. For multiplying it by N times, we need to run our loop N times. Since we know the number of times loop will execute, so we are using for loop.

Example:

```    Input:
base: 5, power: 4

Output:
625
```

### C++ code to find power of a number using loop

```#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main()
{
int num;
int a = 1;
int pw;

cout << "Enter a number: ";
cin >> num;
cout << "\n";

cout << "Enter a power : ";
cin >> pw;
cout << "\n";

for (int i = 1; i <= pw; i++) {
a = a * num;
}

cout << a;

return 0;
}
```

Output

```Enter a number: 5

Enter a power : 4

625
```
