Exponentiation operator (**) in JavaScript

The exponentiation operator was introduced in ECMAScript 2016, ** is used to denote this operator. It accepts base on its left-hand side and exponent on its right-hand side, respectively.


Prior to exponentiation operator(**) we used to use the Math.pow(var1, var2) function to return the base to the exponent power, both exponentiation operator and math.pow methods produces same results.
