Good morning,

I noticed when coding with the latest version of Python 3.11. the exponent ^ bitwise operator does not compute as an exponent?

But, if Iím understanding the methods of computation,

^ operand was expressed as a simplistic approach on a calculator to calculate exponents instead of typing out for example 2 x 2 x 2 x 2. Instead it would be written as 2^4 = 16

2*4 would mean 2 x 4 = 8.

2**4 = ????, I mean I guess this good too.


When I am computing this 2^4= the answers takes on addition. And adds the two integers.


I checked the documents and I donít see anything about this mentioned in using the operands in Python.

Is there anyway I can get feedback about this?


When I was learning Python, this was an included operand in relation to exponent expressions.


Thank you
