The Excel EXP function (e) returns the result of the constant e that has been raised to the power of a given number. Mathematically speaking, “e” or Euler’s Number is a numeric constant whose approximate value is 2.71828. The constant is related to exponential growth and decay. The EXP function in Microsoft Excel is an inverse of the LN (natural logarithm) function.

## What is the purpose of the EXP function in Excel?

The EXP function (e) is used for finding the value of e raised to the power of a number.

## What valued does the EXP function return?

The value returned by the EXP function (e) is that of the value of e raised to the power of a number.

## What is the Syntax for using the EXP function?

This is the syntax for using the EXP function (e) in Excel: =EXP (number). The “number” over here is the power that “e” is raised to.

## How does the EXP function work?

The EXP function calculates the value of “e” (Euler’s number) raised to a particular number. In a more simplified form, EXP function can be represented 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.

=EXP(0) // returns 1

=EXP(1) // returns 2.71828182846 (the value of e)

=EXP(2) // returns 7.38905609893

Hopefully, you will be able to use “e” in Excel with ease now.
