-module(math).
-export([fac/1, sq/1,cube/1,power/2]).

fac(N) when N>0 ->
        N * fac(N-1);
fac(0) ->
        1.
    
sq(X) -> X*X.

cube(X) -> X*X*X.

power(N,P) ->
        if P==0 ->
                1;
        true ->
                if P>0 ->
                        N * power(N,P - 1);
                true ->
                        1 / power(N,-1 * P).
