I'm working with exponentiation and I have an assignment to write a code for loop initialization and loop body but unfortunately, I don't even know what that means.
I was given the following information:
Input x // can be any float
Input y // has to be a positive integer
Set result = 1 // initial value
For i = 1 to y
result = result * x
Can anyone PLEASE translate what that means and show me an example of a loop initialization and loop body code? Please advise if you need more info. I apologize in advance for being slow.
