## Syntax

```
EXP(<number>)
```

### Parameters

Term | Definition |
---|---|

number | The exponent applied to the base e. The constant e equals 2.71828182845904, the base of the natural logarithm. |

## Return value

A decimal number.

## Exceptions

## Remarks

EXP is the inverse of LN, which is the natural logarithm of the given number.

To calculate powers of bases other than e, use the exponentiation operator (^). For more information, see DAX Operator Reference.
