This post will guide you how to use Google Sheets EXP function with syntax and examples.

The EXP function in Google Sheets is used to calculate the value of the exponential function, which is e raised to the power of a given number.

## 1. Google Sheets EXP Function Description

The Google Sheets EXP function returns e raised to the power of a number.  The constant e is equal to 2.71828182845904, and it is the base of the natural logarithm.

You can use EXP function to get the value of e raised to the power of a given number.

The EXP function can be used to find the value of e raised to the power of a number in google sheets. And its returned value is the constant e raised to the power of a given number.

The EXP function is a build-in function in Google Sheets and it is categorized as a MATH function.

## 2. Google Sheets EXP Function Syntax

The syntax of the EXP function is as below:

= EXP (number)

Where the EXP function argument is:

• numberThis is a required argument. The power to raise e to.

Note:

• To calculate powers of other bases, use the exponentiation operator (^).
• EXP is the inverse of LN, the natural logarithm of number.

## 3. Google Sheets EXP Function Examples
