power

Language/Type: C++ recursion
Author: Marty Stepp (on 2016/06/16)

Write a recursive function named power that accepts two integers representing a base and an exponent and returns the base raised to that exponent. For example, the call of power(3, 4) should return 34 or 81 . If the exponent passed is negative, throw an integer exception.

Do not use loops or auxiliary data structures; solve the problem recursively. Also do not use the provided C++ pow function in your solution.

Type your solution here:


This is a function problem. Write a C++ function as described. Do not write a complete program; just the function(s) above.
