    I'm having a little trouble with the functions in this questions type.
    1. I would have expected the log function to give the common (base 10) log of a number since there is also a ln function supported. It appears to be giving the natural (base e) log.
    2. How do I take a number to a power?. I don't see an operator or function for that in the documentation.
