The Excel **EXP** function is a *Math* formula that returns the value of the constant *e* (Euler's number) raised to the power of a given number (*e ^{x}*). The constant

*e*is approximately equal to 2.71828, which is the base of the natural logarithm. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to use the

**EXP**function and also go over some tips and error handling methods.

## Supported versions

- All Excel versions

## Excel EXP Function Syntax

EXP(number)

## Arguments

| The power that e is raised to. |

## Example

The **EXP** function calculates the value of the constant *e* raised to a given number. The formula is simply *e ^{x}*. The following function returns the base of the natural logarithm

*e*raised to the power of 3.

=EXP(3)

## Tips

- Set the
**number**argument to*1*to get the value of the constant*e*. - The constant
*e*is called the Euler's number, named after the Swiss mathematician Leonhard Euler. **EXP**is the inverse of**LN**, the natural logarithm of a number.
