Want to learn more about how to returns e raised to the power of number by using an excel spreadsheet?? This post will give you an overview of how to use EXP formula functions to returns the result of the constant e raised to the power of numbers.

Syntax(Generic Formula):

=EXP(number)

Number: The power that e is raised to. Excel has an exponential & natural log function =EXP(value) will give us the result of evalue.

Example and how the EXP function works

Excel has an exponential excel function it’s called Excel EXP function which is categorized as Math or Trigonometry Function that returns a numerical value which is equal to e raised to the power of a given value.

Figure 1: Example of returns e raised to the power of the number

If you want to find the result of the constant e raised to the power given numbers, you can use the EXP function. In the example selected cell shown, the formula in C6 is:

=EXP(B6)

The EXP function in excel returns e raised to the power of number, so you can write this as e^(number), where e ≈ 2.71828. EXP is the inverse of LN(the natural logarithm) of the number

Explanation:

The constant number e is an irrational number you know and also one of the most important numbers in whole mathematics. Excel has an exponential & natural log function =EXP(value)  which will give us the result of value. For example, if we want to find the value of e2 x-1, where x is to be taken from cell B6 in the example, you would use the formula =EXP(2*B6-1).

The following formula only sums one line of a spreadsheet. It should match a specific value in one tab and add all lines with this value together. It does not. =SUMIF('Operating Exp.'!D2:S150,VLOOKUP(SUMMARY!A5,'Operating Exp.'!D:S,16,FALSE),'Operating Exp.'!D2:S151)
