I'm a beginner learning to program with Python. I'm trying to explain a
solution in plain English. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Create a function that takes base and exponent as arguments.

In the body of the function:

set a result variable to the base.

User a for-loop with a range of 1 to the exponent.

With each iteration, set the result to the product of result times base.

After the loop, return the result.

Call the function.
