Just like Maple, C provides you with the basic math operators:
Unfortunately, C doesn't have a built-in exponentiation operator.
You can group together parts of an expression with parentheses, like this:
result = (a + b) * c;
Pretty much all of this should be familiar to you already, since you have a fair amount of Maple experience under your belt. Our example C program contains examples of the basic math operators. Look them over before you continue on to the next section.
