**EXP Function (DAX)**

**How does the EXP function (DAX) work?**

The EXP function (DAX) returns e raised to the power of a given number. The constant e equals 2.71828182845904, the base of the natural logarithm.

**EXP** **Formula Syntax**

EXP(

<number>

)

**How do you use the EXP function?**

The EXP function finds the value of the constant *e* raised to a given number, so you can think of the EXP function as *e*^(number), where e ≈ 2.718. The exponential function can be used to get the value of *e* by passing the number 1 as the argument.
