- IMPOWER returns complexnumber raised to the power of number. The result is a complex number presented as text.
- If complexnumber is a+bi = r(cosφ + isinφ) and number is n, IMPOWER(complexnumber; number) returns (a+bi)^{n} = r^{n}cosnφ + ir^{n}sinnφ.
Example:
IMPOWER("1+2i"; 2)
- returns (1+2i)^{2} = -3+4i as text.
