    Hi, I'm new to Java and I have no idea how to do this problem. I don't know what loops are or how to use them.

    5. In mathematics, exponentiation of an is a multiplied by itself n times. For instance, 53 is 5*5*5, or 125. Define a method so it may be called using the following statement and finds the correct exponential operation:
    [FONT=&quot]int result = exponent(5,3);[/FONT]
    You must use a loop in your method. Using the java.lang.math method pow() is not allowed. You can assume that the exponent is a positive, whole number. Note that the ^ operator does not perform exponentiation.

    you can call the method what you want but I'm going to call it expo for now

    public int expo(int n, int x){

    int z, y;

    y=n;
    for(z=0: z<x; z++){
    y=y*n;
    }
    return y;
    }


    is this correct?
