# How to Compute Euler’s Number in R (Example)

In this article, I’ll illustrate how to get Euler’s number’ in the R programming language.

The tutorial consists of this content:

Let’s dive into it.

## Example: Computing Euler’s Number (e) in R

The following code illustrates how to get Euler’s number (e) using the exp() function provided by the basic installation of the R programming language.

```exp(1)        # Euler's number (e)
# 2.718282```

We can also use the exp command to compute e^2 by simply inserting a 2 within the exp function:

```exp(2)        # Euler's number to the power of 2 (e^2)
# 7.389056```

The previous R codes can be used to return Euler’s number, because the exp function computes the exponentiation with base e.
